Description 

Description:  This is another old-school fly for attractor fanatics.  It has similarities to Fran Betters' Ausable Wulff, Ausable Bomber and the Usual.  However, to my knowledge, my gradfather never knew who was the creator.  Like the Usual, the Woodchuck uses multiple components of itself.  Fluorescent fire orange thread, guard hairs for the wing and tail, and the chopped, blended woodchuck underfur for the body.  Topped off with gold grade Whiting brown and grizzly hackle.  This fly is an attractor pattern and is extremely effective in May and June.  The bugginess and bulkiness make this fly a juicy treat for hungry trout.  Throughout the years, I've come to theorize that this pattern imitates a stonefly.  This fly can be fished during any hatch, anytime in the spring and summer.  This fly is also one that can be effective when your standard mayfly or stone fly patterns are being rejected.

 

What it imitates:  Stoneflies, terrestrials, general searching attractor pattern

 

When to fish it:  May through August

 

Where to fish it:  Rivers and streams

 

How to fish it:  As a dry fly, dead drifted, or on the swing

 

Approximate time to complete this order is:  7 to 10 days

 

MINIMUM ORDER FOR THIS PATTERN IS 5 FLIES
