Best Grasshopper Patterns

Best-Grasshopper-Paterns for trout

Warm windy afternoons with the clicking sounds of Grasshoppers flying through the summer breeze will get any fly anglers heart racing. But what hopper pattern should you choose? That’s always the delema when I hit up a river. What size do I use? What color? Foam or not to foam? Those are the real questions. In this blog I will go through my favorite Grasshopper patterns and when/why I fish them.

Tungsten Beads

Ever since I started fishing, it was engrained into my head the value of tungsten beads, especially when euronymphing.  Tungsten has a density of 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter, while brass has a density of 8.73 grams per cubic centimeter and lead being 11.34 grams per cubic centimeter. 

The added density means a smaller bead to get your fly down into the feeding zone.  With the popularity of euronymphing, this is now more or less common knowledge amongst fly anglers.  As a Competition Angler, I get asked for my opinion on all facets of fly angling, and I’m always happy to share my thoughts.  Tungsten beads comes up quite frequently, and in the past I’ve shared my opinion based on empirical data, but never have I backed this empirical data up with hard cold facts.

Fly Fishing Corbina - Best Flies

So when it comes to fly fishing for Corbina, considering they can be worse than permit at times, the fly selection can be crucial in success in fooling the SoCal Bonefish know as the “ bean” or Corbina. 

San-Diego-Surf-Fishing

Having the right fly to present can mean the difference between getting a take or a major refusal. The majority of the time chasing these fish up and down the surf we are fishing them in very shallow water, therefore they get a very good look at our fly. Playing this sight fishing game can be rewarding but also can be  down right frustrating if your fly isn’t to there liking. Presentation is a very important factor in success as well as the saltwater fly pattern you choose to throw at them. These saltwater fish are very keyed into the food source and are not easily fooled by patterns that don’t represent it well.

Best Dry Flies

BEST DRY FLIES 

Fly-Fishing-Dry-Flies

   There are millions of different dry flies that exist today.  They are designed to mimic insects like mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies and various terrestrials.  Dry flies can be tied with natural materials such as deer hair and hackle feathers, and synthetic materials like foam and rubber legs.  No matter which you choose, it must do two things:  Float, and be durable.

Big Streamers for Big Trout

Big-Flies-Big-Brown-Trout

We all know Trout of all sorts and sizes will eat flies and bugs of all varieties, and you can catch some big fish during the big hatches of Salmonflies or Green Drakes. 

However, when consistently targeting the biggest trout in a river, it is no mystery that big Trout like big flies. In particular, big trout (especially Browns) specifically seek out and target larger meals.  The most consistent large meals in any water are Baitfish/Leeches/Crayfish, etc.  Therefore, when targeting these big trout, it makes the most sense to use our Trophy Streamers, the large streamer flies that best replicate the proportions that they seek.
