This is an awesome dropper pattern, especially for pickier tailwater fish. The original 3 Dollar Dip works great, but the Body Glass gives it some added durability and translucence. Brown seems to work as good as anything else, but Body Glass comes in a ton of colors, so don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit!
The Barr’s Emerger has been one of the most effective fly patterns for imitating a mayfly nymph or emerger for a long time, and for good reason – it works! Easy to tie and easy to alter to match various types of mayflies. Works fantastic as a dropper below a dry fly before a BWO hatch!
If you’re headed to the North Platte River near Casper, Wyoming this is a fly you definitely don’t want to be without! Brown, Gray, and Black have all been fantastic colors for us. Easy tie that catches fish!
Midges are a staple in a trout’s diet, especially throughout the winter and spring. This is a simple tie that catches a lot of trout! Tie a few in different colors and sizes to match your local midge hatch.
