The Leetle Beetle

Cheech - July 21, 2015

"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.
