Product Description

My introduction to the Grey Ugly was a memorable one, as I was out-fished by three generations of Wyoming women along the headwaters of the North Plate River.  Armed with both fly and spinning rods, fishing this fly both on top of and beneath the surface of the water, Grandma, Mother, and Daughter in-law put on a clinic on how to catch fish!  The big brother to the Griffith's Gnat and Renegade fly patterns, the Grey Ugly would be more aptly named "The Sure Thing" or "Silver Bullet" when fish are feeding on large Chironomids or Mosquito! 

Dry/Wet:  Dry or Wet

Fly Category: Generalist Pattern

Family: Midges & Chironomids

Species: Blackfly, Chironomid, Mosquito

  1. Great Fly

    Posted by Ted Smith on 9th Jun 2020

    I've had old time local fishermen tell me about this classic fly for years. Not a common pattern to find. This one is beautifully tied. Size 16: First cast onto North Catamount Reservoir on Pikes Peak netted me a 16" fat rainbow!
