What do these 3 fly fishing scenarios have in common?
You’ve been on the water for an hour, just blind casting and waiting for something to happen. Praying for the hatch or to see some rises.

This fly has a quite generic name but fishes lights out! I had never seen it until I received a sample from Umpqua Feather Merchants. From there began the reverse engineering at the vise.

The most patriotic fly out there.. The Bald Eagle fly pattern is a streamer pattern fished anywhere big trout might be lurking.

One of my favorite combinations would be purple and peach/pink for salmon species. Swing this fly and let the stinger hook do the work.
