My "Go-To" Freestone Summer Fly
Posted by Jeff in Denver on 22nd Sep 2021
You can't beat dry fly fishing with a terrestrial. In the summer and early fall, this pattern will usually get the attention of hungry trout. Large enough to hold a size 16 dropper and floats high for good visibility, but small enough to mimic large flying insects and small terrestrials. A must have in the fly box. These were well tied and hold up to continuous beatings.
A “Frankenbug” that works

Picked Amy’s Ant as a test for a Washington State off the map river. Used a variety of Hoppers, Stims, etc..Amy’s Ant (green/yellow) continually produced 16 + inch rainbows, cut-bow and Cutthroat when nothing else worked. Not a biologist, don’t know why it slays fish, but success is success. Not five stars just because of simple thread issues/tie quality(difficult fly to tie) Enjoy!
Great fly if you want to catch fish

Love this fly. COULD YOU MAKE THIS FLY WITH A YELLOW BODY? Would love to see it in yellow.
If you're only going to pack one terrestrial...

This is the terrestrial to have if you enjoy catching fish. I've noticed it works especially well on high alpine lakes. Thanks to its sparkling bottom, Fish come up from the deep and jump for this sucker!
