The Peacock Humpy
The Humpy, most commonly tied in the Yellow Humpy variation is seemingly a less popular fly in modern days. For me, this is a pattern that should be in every angler’s summer dry box. Not only does it float high, even in the most turbulent water but it keeps its buoyancy fish after fish! Tying these bad boys does take some practice. Watching the elegant dry fly slurps from hungry trout makes it all worth it.

Need a caddis fly that floats nice and high? Look no further than the Goddard Caddis. This dry fly floats like a cork! Created by two English fly tiers and fishers John Goddard and Clive Henry in the early ’60’s this fly is a must have in. With a full body of spun / flared elk hair it is a great pattern to throw in faster moving water or if you need to give some twitchy action to encourage strikes but don’t want to continually sink/cure your fly. I like to fish it solo or along with a smaller trailing dry fly behind it.

Who else out there is ready to throw dry flies! The Parachute Madam X is one that I love to get out on the water when I have the chance. PMX for short, this fly is a variation of the classic Madam X. The PMX has an added Parachute post with the hackle wrapped around it in the same method of a Parachute Adams, which helps with both visibility and buoyancy. This is a great pattern to utilize when there are lots of summer bugs out and about whether it’s large stoneflies or hoppers. There’s nothing like getting a big trout to look up at a large dry fly!
