The Grumpy Frumpy - OG Version

The Grumpy Frumpy - OG Version

Cheech's Favorite Dry Fly  Before you get too far reading this, you HAVE to check out the way I tied in this hackle.  It's absolutely bulletproof. Now that we have that out of the way, the Grumpy Frumpy was one of my first commercially available fly patterns that has morphed over the years in size and color, but it seems that I always come back to the original colorway - yellow/tan.  Check out the story of how it was created HERE .  It seems that many of my most memorable fishing days are when the fish are aggressively and stupidly gorging on attractors like the Grumpy Frumpy!   ~ Cheech You will need hackle with this fly as well, and since we individually size them, here is a link to all of our available COACHMAN BROWN hackle.  You can use coachman brown or grizzly dyed coachman brown... The fish approve of both. Material List Add to Cart   View in store                                          Hook : TMC Tiemco 9300 Dry & Wet

Articulated Bruiser Bugger - Simple Articulated Streamer

Simple, Fishy, Goodness I think we all like the flash of a big trout after it engulfs a big articulated streamer, but we don't always love tying those big time hogging bugs.  This fly is designed to be a fly that is pretty simple to tie, and they can be tied in a wide range of colors and sizes.  Also, be sure to check out it's little brother, the Bruiser Bugger .

Complex Twist Sow Bug

Complex Twist Sow Bug

All Protein, All Seasons The Guide for New Fly Shop Employees (1995) has a very in depth chapter about fly recommendations in Utah.  To sum it up, if you aren't quite sure what to prescribe an angler who is headed out, recommend a sow bug regardless of the season.  Sow bugs are a plentiful food source in a lot of Utah rivers, and the fish love to eat them.  Rainbow sows, Ray Charles, Gut Sacks, Local Magic Mojo, etc...  Just make sure that they have a sow bug, and they will likely catch fish.  It was this logic that made me want to kind of mess with some patterns on jig hooks that would be durable, easy, and quick to tie.  See, with sow bugs, you are going to fish them pretty close to the bottom to match where they are in the river, so it's important that they can be a pretty quick tie because you will break some off.   This pattern really isn't anything super original.  It's basically a variation of the Ray Charles that doesn't have any flashback, and
