New Flies March 2016

March Brown CDC Emerger

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

Blue Assassin-Beadhead Blue Assassin Beadhead -
  • A local legend and go to pattern on the Hooch River.
  • This pattern  includes a bit of soft hackle to add some natural characteristics to the fly.
  • Blue ice dubbing on the thorax along with silver tinsel on the body create incredible flash underwater making fish instantly attracted to it.
  • A great tailwater fly that is sure to be successful on many rivers and streams.
Chicken Hawk Robinsons Chicken Hawk -
  • Legendary pattern in Steelhead Alley. Fishes particularly well late in the season when the fish have seen the same thing over and over.
  • Fish in a dead drift, or swing, whichever you prefer just make sure you get it down.
  • Trout also love this fly.
  • Invented by Patrick Robinson of Steelhead Alley Outfitters. Be sure to check these guys out if you are in need of guide services.
Cripple Thor
Cripple Thor -
  • Blue wing olives are one of the most iconic hatches.
  • Fly fisherman relish them as do the fish.
  • Being so popular this one hatch has created a plethora of patterns, each effective in their own right.
  • The Cripple Thor is a blue wing olive cripple pattern, that will also work wonders when fished as an emerger.
  • The subtle difference of this fly can be the key to catching fish who have seen the same Barr’s pattern a 100 times over.
Double Dipper-Beadhead
Double Dipper Beadhead -
  • The addition of beadheads forever changed the way we nymph for trout. Since then hundreds of thousands of flies have been generated with the sole process of attracting trout.
  • The newest craze (probably one of the biggest changes since beadheads) UV and fluorescents in threads, dubbing, and other materials. They have only increased the visibility of a fly underwater.
  • Lots of fisherman have atoned this to Czech and Euro nymphing, making this pattern a great candidate for that type of fishing.
  • We personally think they will do well when your standard Hare’s Ear isn’t producing as it should (the natural colors give it that buggy feel, while the beadhead and fluorescent thread bring in the attention).
Flash San Juan Worm
Flash San Juan Worm

  • "He’s going to show up with a coffee can full of worms. Red can. Hills Brothers. I’d lay a bet on it." - River Runs Through It. Since that line in the 1992 movie, most fly fishermen have turned away from worms, with understandable reasoning.
  • Worms aren’t like a delicate caddis or blue wing olive. There is nothing poetic or special about them. They are basically everywhere at pretty much anytime. 
  • Often looked at as a thing of no respect.
  • With that being said the simple truth is fish love worms.
  • They are often available and fish readily eat them.
  • This pattern includes a bit of krystal flash to give it a life like shine
Jigged Fox Halo Squirrel Nymph
Jigged Fox Halo Squirrel Nymph -
  • It's big. It's messy. It's buggy. It's nasty looking. It's a jig nymph. And fish LOVE IT.
  • Much like a old school Hare's Ear, gold ribbing, and dubbing sticking out every way.
  • Better to fish late in the season when a Hare's Ear has been presented one to many times.
  • Jig nymphs are becoming more and more popular in the fly fishing community.
March Brown CDC Emerger
March Brown CDC Emerger -
  • Not always on the water, but when they are the fish are always biting.
  • Emerger patterns are great for the time of day when the hatch hasn’t yet started yet, but you can feel it come.
  • Dressed with CDC this pattern will float with the body just partially covered by the water. Giving it the appearance of a insect about to get out of the water and into the air.
  • Also giving the fish that feeling of it better strike now or it won’t get it at all.
  • Rithrogena Germanica, Stenonema Vicarium, Rhithrogena morrisoni, are all insects commonly referred to as March Browns.
One Trick Bunny
One Trick Bunny -
  • Rabbit strips, dumbbell eyes and a hook with a huge gap. What more could you ask for in an gamefish fly.
  • Catches just about anything under the sun, bass, pike, walleye, steelhead, salmon, etc.
  • Little bit of micro flashabou in the tail adds even more attractant.
Redhead Roach
Red Head Roach -
  • Very popular pattern that can be used for bass and pike.
  • May also be used with a variety of other fish species.
Sexy Walt Worm
Sexy Walt Worm -
  • Jig nymphs are becoming more and more popular in the fly fishing community.
  • Extremely popular nymph in the PA area.
  • Mimics loads of bugs in the water.
  • Very similar to the Walt Worm, with an added thread collar and ribbing.
Spider Legs Glow Popper Spider Legs Glow Popper-
  • Looks white in the day light but turns a chartreuse glow at night.
  • One of the best for smallmouth bass and panfish.
  • Slides just under the surface then pops back up.
  • Excellent for Bluegill.
  • Cork body made of balsa wood.
  • Total length 2"
Woven Stone Woven Stone -

  • Stonefly nymphs live in clean moving water, and are an important feeding source for both trout and steelhead.
  • Juvenile steelhead gorge themselves on stonefly nymphs and are therefore imprinted on the returning adult steelheads.  A good indicator of steelhead holding areas will be the density of stonefly nymphs in the area.
  • Therefore this pattern will work for steelhead as well as trout.
  • Stonefly nymphs are very poor swimmers and are often knocked off rocks to float freely at the mercy of feeding fish.
  • Use this pattern in faster moving water, year around, for fast vicious strikes.
  • Tight woven body allows this pattern to get down faster.
