Leetle Beetle

Quick and effective

Leetle Beetle in Black

"Uh... yes...  I'd like materials to tie a fly that is quick and effective sir."  Summer time is a great time to expand your terrestrial game, and we have been tying all kinds of big nasties like hoppers, cicadas, and larger beetles.  I realized that there was a hole in my box right where my smaller terrestrials should be.  I started using some of the techniques from the Unsinkabeetle, and stripped them down a bit.  This fly is about as simple as it gets, and it plain hunts.  Tie them in a variety of sizes and colors to fool basically anything that eats beetles (trout, bass, carp, sunfish, etc.).

This beetle is most effective in black, but olive/brown and tan are great as well.
