Fish Nerds Podcast #153 Five Essential Flies for Fly Fishing and PostFly Box


5 Flies every freshwater fisher needs -Rich Collins

Elk Hair Caddis (Caddis on the surface, dry fly that can be stripped under the surface or skittered)

Black Wooly Bugger (I prefer cone head with legs) (Stonefly or leech emulator)

Bead head nymph – essentially emulates nymphs of any species (Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear or Prince Nymph)


Parachute Adams – an all around mayfly staple


San Juan Worm – its a worm fly. A good old fashioned trout worm/Dilliy emulator. Trail it off an egg pattern and you get what they call a “Spaghetti and Meatball” rig.



Bonus points: The duracell. Its a UV threaded numph on a jig head. Think of it as the “Iron man” fly – an all business, all action Nymph.
