Mop flies have been really popular over the past couple seasons, and for good reason – they catch fish in a wide variety of conditions, and they have great action in the water. This is a variant that uses FNF Predator Worm material rather than mop chenille, which makes it more durable and gives the fly a little more life in the water.
Hands down the winner of the ugliest fly competition, the Mop Fly has a love/hate following. That being said, there’s no disputing the effectiveness of these strange looking flies. Cream and tan seem to work plenty well, but there’s lots of other options that will work great depending on your fish and conditions. If you’re fishing high and dirty water, there may be no better fly!
