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 - Wooly Worm

  Hook - Wet or dry 4X long 4-16
  Thread - Black
Tail Red hackle fibers or wool
Body Chenille - See notes
Hackle Grizzly palmered so the hackle fibers lean toward the front.
This can be tied on any hook and has taken many specie of fish. I have fished them dry and wet, it just depends on the time and place as to what works.
The most popular colours have been Black, Yellow, Olive, and Red. It has worked in Purple, Orange, Brown, and Grey as well.
