  • cheech's grumpy frumpy yellow bottom cheech's grumpy frumpy yellow
    Cheech's Grumpy Frumpy has been a great little attractor pattern on the Madison over the last few years. The yellow grumpy frumpy works wonders as a yellow sally imitation too. Color: Yellow, Purple, Peacock/Chartreuse. Available in size 16.
  • stimulator fly olive stimulator fly yellow
    The Stimulator a is a favorite for us on the Madison whether we are fishing stoneflies, caddis, or terrestrials. This has been a staple dry fly pattern in the boxes of untold amounts of anglers, and we see no reason that should change any time soon.  Colors: yellow, olive, and royal.
  • para wulff purple bottom para wulff purple
    The Purple Para Wulff is an excellent general mayfly and attractor pattern that has worked for our guides for years.

    carnage hopper bottom carnage hopper
    The Carnage Hopper is much like Rainy's Grand Hopper, but with a more tapered foam body and red rubber legs. It has been a staple hopper pattern in this shop for years, and one that our customers have done very well with on their home waters. Color: Tan. Available in sizes 8-12.
  • bloom's parachute flying ant cinnamon bloom's parachute flying ant black
    Dave Bloom's Parachute Flying Ant is a simple but highly effective ant pattern that no terrestrial box should be without.
  • bloom's stealth ant red black bottom bloom's stealth ant red black
    Dave Bloom's stealth ant is very similar to his parachute flying ant, but with a splayed z-lon wing on the back with 3-4 strands of pearl midge flash on each side.  This pattern is tied to imitate a fluttering flying ant, but you can also cut the wing off to make it more of a standard adult.
  • This fly was created by Dave Whitlock in the 1950's while he was trying to improve upon Joe's Hopper, which was one of the only commercial grasshopper imitations at that time. Dave noticed that the biggest problem with Joe's Hopper was its inability to float for long periods of time, in addition to its tendency to twist the leader.  His good friend and fly fishing legend Joe Brooks suggested that he fish a muddler minnow instead, which gave Dave the idea to combine the best of both worlds and Dave's Hopper was the end result.  Year after year, Dave's hopper continues to produce quality fish the world over, and has probably accounted for more fish than any other grasshopper imitation ever produced.
  • dornan's micro gold member bottom dornan's micro gold member
    The micro gold member is a small foam creation from the mind of Will Dornan.  We have used these as attractors, terrestrials, and yellow sally imitations and the foam body and razor foam wing keep this fly floating like a cork throughout most of the day.
  • amy's ant olive bottom amy's ant olive
    Amy's Ant was created by Jack Dennis on the Snake River system in Wyoming, and is just one of those foam bodied creations that got to have in your Western dry fly box.  We fish the larger version of this fly for golden and nocturnal stones on the Madison, but it can also be a great searching pattern during terrestrial season.  Available in size 8.
  • dornan's chubby peanut bottom dornan's chubby peanut
    Will Dornan's Chubby Peanut is a hybrid of his circus peanut dry fly and a traditional Chubby Chernobyl that works great as a golden stone imitation as well as a general attractor.  It features a dubbed underbody with a big piece of goldenrod foam and a light gray poly wing.  Available in size 10-12.
  • galloup's snow shoe hopper bottom galloup's snowshoe hopper
    Kelly originally tied this pattern to imitate small hoppers on the Madison, but it has proved equally as effective for larger caddis and also works incredibly well for spruce moths in late July and August.
  • rainy's hi viz grand hopper flesh bottom rainy's hi viz grand hopper flesh
    There are times when grasshoppers turn this color during their molting process and get swept into the river.  While they could be taking this for a molting insect, our guess is that it has more do with showing the fish a little something different after they have seen a thousand other tan patterns pass overhead. Regardless of why they eat the flesh grand hopper, we wouldn't be caught dead without it during the months of August and September on the Madison.
