Borcher's Drake
Borcher's Drake - Every once in awhile a fly comes around that is both extremely effective and versatile, that would be an underestimate for the Borcher’s Drake.  Known to imitate Hendricksons, Mahoganies, March Browns, Black Quills, Isonychias, and Sulphurs to name a few, this pattern is a go-to May Fly imitation. Its humble beginnings were in Michigan and is a must-have when fishing those waters. Has also been extremely effective in the Catskills. Currently available in sizes 10, 12, and 14. 
Bumble Bee Popper
Bumble Bee Popper - Something about the combination of yellow and black absolutely drive bass nuts. A zonker strip and rubber legs tail only further an aggressive bass's interests. Whether your chasing smallmouth, largemouth, white, or hybrid, if your going after bass a Bumble Bee Popper pattern is a must. Not many things are more exciting in life then watching a bass come flying out of the water to gobble up your popper. Also been known to be effective with pike and musky. Currently available in size 6, with a total length of 3.5 inches.
Conehead Trout Streamer
Conehead Trout Streamer - Fish love to eat other fish, especially big fish. This trout streamer includes a conehead to help gets this big pattern down quick. Fish on the swing in deep slots or along eddie lines. Total length is 3 inches. Eastern North American fisherman might also want to check out our Trout Streamer Blacknose Dace listed further down in this post. Currently available in size 2.
Cottonwood Seed
Cottonwood Seed - Cottonwood seeds? What eats that? How about carp and big ole brown trout. Carp regularly take cottonwood seeds during the late spring and early summer. A nice, easy, quick meal for a carp and one of the few flies that can be used to entice carp into top water action. Brown trout readily eat cottonwood seeds in rivers and streams that have cottonwood trees along their banks. Currently available in size 10.
Floating Minnow Everglades

Floating Minnow Everglades - Originally invented for stripers, however, it has had success with most predatory fish.  The floating minnow is designed to float along the surface and create V-shaped wakes as it is stripped in. In colors that have been proven to be extremely successful in the Everglades. Weed guard allows a fisherman access to weed covered areas where the real big fish lay in wait. Currently available in size 2/0 total length 3.5
Floating Minnow Olive/White
Floating Minnow Olive/White - Originally invented for stripers, the floating minnow is designed to float along the surface and create V-shaped wakes as it is stripped in. Olive and white create the most natural color combination, making this one of the more versatile designs of floating minnows. Use a long leader for best results. Weed guard allows a fisherman access to weed covered areas where the real big fish lay in wait. Currently available in size 2/0 total length 3.5
Floating Minnow Purple/Black
Floating Minnow Purple/Black - The floating minnow is designed to float along the surface and create V-shaped wakes as it is stripped in. In colors that have been proven to be extremely successful, particularly with warmwater species such as pike, musky, bass, etc. Use a long leader for best results. Weed guard allows a fisherman access to weed covered areas where the real big fish lay in wait. Total Length: 3.5 inches plus, size 2/0
Hot Wire Caddis-Beadhead
Hot Wire Caddis-Beadhead - Originally invented for use in Northern California and the Sierras, it was started from the famous Copper John. Originally invented by Ken Morrish out of Ashland, OR, the Hot Wire Caddis was his adaptation of a Copper John caddis. The typical copper john is meant to replicate a stonefly or mayfly. The use of wire helps get this pattern down (like a copper john) while the curved hook gives a more caddis-like profile. Currently available in sizes 12, 14, and 16, also in colors Amber, Chartreuse, and Olive.
Just Add Water-Beadhead
Just Add Water-Beadhead - An excellent callibaetis lake pattern, just like the title, all this fly needs is the water. Beadhead gives it weight, tied in pheasant tail (a proven color that fish absolutely love), and flash tightly trim all around the fly to give it that emerging appearance. Designed specifically for lakes, more importantly, high lakes. This pattern is sure to bring in the huge 20" plus lurkers, to smart to be fooled by your more traditional patterns. Available in sizes 16 and 18.
Parachute Humpy Ant
Parachute Humpy Ant - From Scott Sanchez’s book “A New Generation of Trout Flies,” this pattern is many fishermen’s go-to ant pattern. It’s foam body insures that it won’t sink, and eliminates the need to dress it with floatant. Sure to be extremely useful during terrestrial hatches and ant falls. This pattern is currently only available in black and sizes 14, 16, and 18, however, we have a feeling there will be more to come.  
Trout Streamer Blacknose Dace
Trout Streamer Blacknose Dace - One of the most notorious baitfish in eastern North America, the Blacknose Dace. This one little fish is responsible for creating 100 of streamers. This trout streamer is tied in colors that instantly attracts big fish. Fish on the swing in deep slots or along eddie lines. Total length is 3 inches. Currently available in size 2.
Twenty Pound Stone
Twenty Pound Stone -As the Deschutes River is our home waters, we are huge fans of any stonefly imitation. This one is just another must-have in the boxes of many of the Big Y staff. A variation of the extremely popular Twenty Incher, this fly is meant to be its steelhead chasing cousin. Tied on an extremely strong curved hook, this fly is sure to live up to its name and have no problem landing a 20 pound monster. You can bet this guy will catch its fair share of trout as well as steelhead and salmon. It is sure to be a new go-to summer steelhead pattern. Currently available in sizes 6 and 8.
