The Classic Woolly Bugger
"What really makes the Woolly Bugger a must have in every fly box is its versatility, it can be fished effectively in pretty much any body of water in any water condition, from clear streams to murky ponds the Wooly Bugger can get it done that why it is a classic"
The Woolly Bugger is a classic streamer that imitates a wide range of tasty creatures like Leech, Crawfish, Sculpins, Hellgrammite's, Dobsonflies, and many more. What really makes the Woolly Bugger a must have in every fly box is its versatility, it can be fished effectively in pretty much any body of water in any water condition, from clear streams to murky ponds the Wooly Bugger can get it done that why it is a classic.
This fly pattern is just like the Classic Woolly Bugger but with a weighted head and some added "Flair". The added flair along with the weighted head will allow the lure to sink fast and be more visible in more murky water conditions.
The Woolly Worm is a general purpose nymph pattern that is seen in most western trout fishermen fly boxes. Woolly Worms are usually fished in streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes for panfish, trout, and bass. Woolly Worm's are made to imitate large aquatic nymphs like hellgrammites, dragonflies, and stoneflies.
The Royal Stimulator fly pattern is just like the original Stimulator pattern it was made to imitate the Stonefly but is often used as a searching fly pattern because it can imitate many species of trout candy. This fly pattern is a great pattern to fish from Spring to Fall.
What are the features of the Royal Stimulator Fly?
The Stimulator fly pattern was invented to imitate the Stonefly but is also what a lot of fly fishermen use as a searching pattern because it resembles a lot of different types of flies all at once. This makes it a great pattern to use when you don't know what to use and fish just so happen to go for it.
The Clouser Minnow is the most popular streamer fly pattern of all time invented by Bob Clouser in 1987. Streamer fly patterns imitate baitfish in the water and this one is a must-have for any fly box. The Clouser Minnow is perfect for most saltwater applications and is effective in warm freshwater fishing too.
The Black Ghost Streamer pattern was first tied back in 1927 and since then it has been a proven classic. Streamer flies imitate baitfish in the water and this one is one of the most popular streamer flies of all time a most for any fly box. The Black Ghost is perfect for salmon, sea trout, and steelhead fishing.
We recommend fishing soft hackles in shallow 2-4' of water in broad currents or in water conditions that have a lot of "riffles" on the surface of the water. In the most ideal conditions you would fish soft hackles during caddis or mayfly emergences.
We decided to put all of our soft hackles here on one page. The available patterns are listed below.
The Royal Wulff fly pattern is a very popular searching pattern that imitates many different types of creatures from mayflies to terrestrials. The Wulff style of fly patterns originated in the 1930's by Lee Wulff and have been fished with great success since they were first tied.
The Adams fly is one of the most popular dry fly patterns ever invented made to imitate the Adult Mayfly but also indirectly imitates many other insects like Caddis and Midge. This fly pattern is world-renowned for its effectiveness for river trout fishing a must-have for any fly box.
The Caddis Dry Fly is one of the most popular dry fly patterns in North America for good reason, it imitates one of the trout's favorite meals caddisflies. Caddisflies are a moth-like creature that emerges from its larva in fresh bodies of water (often were trout live) making it an easy snack for hungry trout. This is definitely a fly you'll want to "Match the Hatch" with.
The Caterpillar fly pattern is a terrestrial fly pattern. Try throwing this fly in areas with overhanging trees, bushes, or any forms of vegetation where a caterpillar might get blown off into the water.
The black beetle fly pattern is a surprisingly effective pattern when you are having trouble "Matching The Hatch". Beetle can be found by most bodies of water and are an easy meal for trout. We recommend trying this pattern during the fall and summer months.
The Ant fly is an obvious insect imitation of the Ant. We love using this fly pattern in the summertime for trout fishing after all the terrestrials have had time to come out and start finding themselves in ponds and streams. Why worry about "matching the hatch" when ants can be found by pretty much any body of water.
The black Foam beetle fly pattern is a surprisingly effective pattern when you are having trouble "Matching The Hatch". Beetles can be found by most bodies of water and are easy pray for trout. We recommend trying this pattern during the fall and summer months.
