Product Description

The broadest definition of a "Terrestrial" is any land-born animal or insect.  As far as food sources for trout are concerned, this selection covers the big 5 terrestrial food groups of ants, beetles, grasshoppers, crickets, and cicadas.  

When nothing is hatching on the water and little is going on beneath the surface, terrestrial fly patterns can ignite some ferocious strikes!  With many of the invertebrates in this family becoming increasingly active at warmer temperatures, these patterns really shine on windy days late spring through the fall.  

The Small Selection will touch on grasshoppers, crickets, ants, beetles, and cicadas with 12 dry fly patterns. 

The Medium Selection will expand the size and color range, and includes grasshoppers, crickets, ants, beetles, and cicadas with 24 dry fly patterns. 

The Large Selection will exhaustively cover the size and color variables that you will encounter on the water when fishing grasshoppers, crickets, ants, beetles, and cicadas with 36 dry fly patterns.

The fly patterns included in this selection are:

  • Parachute Hopper
  • Foam Hopper
  • Parachute Cricket
  • Foam Beetle
  • Ant - Black and/or Rust
  • Flying Ant - Black and/or Rust
  • Cicada

The quantity of flies dedicated to each species and family of terrestrial, as well as the size of fly included, is based the natural invertebrate they imitate and their importance to feeding trout.

Fly box not included - selection will be packed in a recyclable container.
