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 - Taddy

  Hook - Std wet 8-12
  Thread - Black
Tail and Body Black squirrel tail
Notes  Tie a medium bundle of hair on just behind the eye so the cut ends are pointing to the rear of the hook: let it spin around the shank. Bend the hair back so it is pointing to the rear of the hook and tie it about midway, letting it flare out the back. The object is to form a hair head and a lightly flared tail.
