Fly Patterns  ~  Helpful Information  ~  Waters (photos)  ~  Your Input ~  Home       


This classic pattern is still one of the best to imitate the bright green inchworm which dangle from the trees above the creek, then fall in.  Let it float as it will, and often, when it becomes water-logged and ducks just under the surface, trout and bream will snatch it up.
