April New Flies

The following patterns were added to the Big Y Catalog for the month of April. For a complete list please visit our website or click here.

Black Nose Dace Tandem
Black Nose Dace Tandem -The Black Nose Dace is a classic fly fishing streamer that has been around for years. More recently the Black Nose Dace Tandem was invented, primarily for trolling with flies on Maine's Lakes. Trolling flies have quickly been gaining popularity and are a must have when visiting lakes especially in the New England region and Canada.
Blue Smelt Tandem
Blue Smelt Tandem - Meant to mimic a smelt pattern, the Blue Smelt has everything a big trout is looking for. This pattern is also an extremely popular lake pattern, that got its start tin the New England region. At Big Y we strive to keep up with new patterns that our customers are looking for and this one in particular we have received many requests for. Should work well anywhere fish are targeting in on smelt. 

Buck Bug
Buck Bug -Buck Bug's typically refer to any bug that is made primarily out of deer hair, usually Bombers and other flies used for skating. This pattern is one of the most natural looking Buck Bugs out there, hence why we have duped it as the Buck Bug. It's subtle colors are sure to intense finicky steelhead that won't give your florescent orange Bomber a second glance. These guys are usually used for chasing Erie run steelhead, but should be effective where ever you see steelhead rolling.
Castle Island King Tandem
Castle Island King Tandem - Another trolling fly originating in the state of Maine. This guy is a tad shorter then the other trolling patterns carried at Big Y. However, with one hook facing the surface and one hook pointed down it is sure to keep any fish on your line that gives this pattern a bite. Great pattern for chasing lake trout, browns, and brooks. Will work well anytime fish are targeting traditional streamers.
Dark Lord-Beadhead
Dark Lord-Beadhead - The Dark Lord wins Big Y staff's trout pattern of the month. Out of all the flies added this month, this pattern is the one we are most excited to fish. With stonefly hatches literally days away this pattern should prove to be quite successful. A play on a prince nymph, the Dark Lord is an attractor/stonefly imitation. Fish anywhere you would fish a prince but aren't having the typical prince success. 
Fish Taco
Fish Taco - If the Dark Lord is the Trout pattern of the month, then the Fish Taco is our Steelhead pattern. Some of these guys didn't even make it onto the website due to eager Big Y staff hands. This light weight swinging pattern has had year around success for both salmon and steelhead. Available in three colors black, pink, and purple. The Fish Taco is sure to look as tasty to a fish and the real taco is to us humans. 
Grey Ghost Tandem
Grey Ghost Tandem - One of the most popular bucktail streamers invented, the Grey Ghost has caught more than its fair share of fish. Big Y is now offering that same pattern with twice the hooks. The Grey Ghost Tandem is another trolling pattern coming to you from the state that should be labeled the trolling state, Maine. However, should be effective anywhere there are big trout and regulations will allow. 
Hook Up Hellgrammite
Hook Up Hellgrammite - Hook up flies are specifically designed to sink with the point of the hook heading towards the surface. The idea behind this is to allow your fly to be closer to the bottom while reducing the chance of getting snagged up. Since Hellgrammites are primarily found under rocks this pattern will allow fisherman to give a more naturally presentation without the worry of rocks tying up your fishing time.

Hook Up Stonefly - Much like the Hook Up Hellgrammite listed above, this pattern is designed to sink hook up. Stoneflies are found under rocks in free stone rivers. The only time fish see these guys is when they are coming out to hatch or have gotten washed for a rock. When fish do see these guys they quickly gobble them up. The ability to give as naturally presentation as possible is key to successful hook ups when fishing stoneflies.
Muddler Tandem
Muddler Tandem - The Muddler Minnow is easily the most iconic baitfish imitations in the fly fishing world. If you have been reading up to this point it is probably pretty easy to guess why and where this pattern came from. However, upon closer inspection this pattern is probably one of the more versatile pattern out of the other trolling patterns. It's natural coloring and deer spun hair has left this pattern up to all sort of imitations.
Purple Haze Sparkle Body
Purple Haze Sparkle Body - When we first released the Purple Haze it quickly became one of our hottest selling patterns and stay on our top ten hot flies chart for over a year. Since then our customers have been asking for the Purple Haze Sparkle Body. Something about sparkle and purple absolutely drives trout crazy. We are sure that this pattern will quickly become a go to pattern in a lot of fly boxes throughout the US.
Tarpon Snake
Tarpon Snake - Originally invented for tarpon held up in deep murky waters, the Tarpon Snake is a pattern with many using in both the salt and fresh. Primarly black in color with krystal flash and chain bell eyes this pattern is meant to get down and stay down. Long black spey hackles make this pattern just over 5 inches long, sure to entice any monster lurking in the depths, be it a tarpon, pike, musky, snook, etc.
