  • deletable-flying-ant-black delektable flying ant
    The Delektable Flying Ant comes to us from Dan Delekta of Cameron, Montana.  Simply put, this has been one of the deadliest ant patterns on the Madison over the last five years and we don't see that changing anytime soon.
  • The Delektable Twisted Baby has been one of our top spruce moth imitations over the last five seasons, but it also works great for medium sized caddis as well.  It features a tan foam body, two pairs of rubber legs, and a MFC Etha-Wing underwing that accurately displays the silhouette of spruce moths and spent caddis.  The delektable twisted baby has an over-wing of white calf tail which aids in overall buoyancy and strike detection. Size: 16
  • 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.
  • dornan's circus peanut bottom dornan's circus peanut
    Will Dornan's Circus Peanut is another tried-and-true foam chernobyl pattern that works great for stoneflies and terrestrials.
  • dornan's flying peanut bottom dornan's flying peanut
    Dornan's Flying Peanut is the smaller cousin of his Chubby Peanut and the only real difference is that it is tied on a Gamakatsu B10S hook rather than a 3x long nymph hook.  This has been a good attractor pattern for us during terrestrial season, but the size 16 version can also double as a good yellow sally adult when you darken up the foam body with a brown marker.
  • 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.
  • dornan's micro water walker peanut bottom dornan's micro water walker peanut
    Will Dornan's Micro Water Walker Peanut is identical to his popular Micro Gold Member pattern, but with a golden body instead of brown.  This is a great little attractor pattern but it also works well for yellow sallies as well.
  • galloup's ant acid fly brown bottom galloup's ant acid fly
    The Ant Acid is the most popular dry fly I have ever produced, and one that I fish with confidence everywhere I take it.
  • 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.
  • The H&L Variant is a classic American dry fly with a pretty cool history.  R.C. Coffman of Colorado tied the first H and L Variant in the mid 50's, and apparently sold so many to President Eisenhower that he said he was able to buy a “house and a lot” (thus the “H” and “L”) on the Fryingpan River in Colorado.  Obviously he might have embellished that story just a bit, but the H&L Variant remains once of the classic Western Attractors of the 20th century and can also be a great general mayfly pattern too.
  • Harrop's CDC Water Wasp is one of our favorite flying ant patterns on the Madison. Color: Honey. Available in Size 16.
  • humpy red humpy fly

    Humpy

    $2.50
    The Humpy is a true classic that has its origins in the American West somewhere in the 1940's.  The deer hair body and heavily hackled thorax make this an extremely buoyant general mayfly and attractor pattern that floats like a cork and still fools fish to this day.  Available in size 14.
