Brown Bear Tackle Box Fly Patterns

Please read the patterns carefully before attempting to tie them.

This will help avoid frustration. I have tried to put the pattern down in order of construction and some of these can become complicated and time consuming.

  Hook - Std dry 10-16 2X long
  Thread - Black
Rear Hackle Dark blue dun

Other body colors are yellow, olive, or grey.

I have used this in Northern B.C. in the smaller sizes and had great luck with it in the fall for Mountain Whitefish
