Nymphing Terrestials


Recommended Posts

I just read an article that suggested one add a little split shot to grasshopper and beetle flies to simulate a bug that has slipped through the film. The author stated this has save the day on mulitiple occasions. Just one if anyone here has tried that?

A crackle back fly comes to mind. You fish it dry or wet, as a streamer or a nymph. It is a good fish catcher but does not really imitate anything.

I like to sink ants and tricos (not terrestrial, but still a dry). Agreeing that sunk ants are deadly.

Lash to hook.. add some black hackle in the middle.. VOILA!

Just once I wish a trout would wink at me!
