Trout – West

Trout – East

With Summer dry fly action in full swing across the country, this month we bring you a dry dropper armada with a wooly bugger kicker. Hang the nymphs under the dries as you head to your local trout water as you hunt for risers breaking the surface. Just remember to practice good fish handling with the high temperatures and check stream temps!

Saltwater – North

Whether you’re chasing stripers, blues or weakfish this summer, July’s collection of saltwater flies are here to get your lines tight! If you really want to try something fun while working the marshes, try hanging one of the baitfish patterns behind the gurgler, the action drives fish crazy!

Saltwater – South

With flood tide season in full swing all across the southeast, its time to break out the gurglers and start pounding the spartina. Pull one of this in front of any tailer and he’s bound to look up and suck one of these flies down.
