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.


  Name - Humpy

  Hook - Std dry 10-14
  Thread - Yellow
Tail Moose body hair
Body Natural deer hair tied in backwards over a light yellow abdomen
Wings The tips of the deer hair pulled upright and divided
Hackle Grizzly
Notes For those who don't understand the concept of tying in backwards; in this case, you tie a bundle of hair in at the start of the hook bend and pull it forward over the body. You want the hair long enough so that you can tie the tip of the hair upright and divide it to make the wings.
