When the “Platinum” level shops start calling me to fill their guides boxes with these jigs because a similar fly was “THE GO-TO” fly last year, you know it’s hot. I know it’s hot too. My logs are filled to the rim with this pattern. Get em while you can as supplies are limited.
Picked up by Fulling Mill as a signature pattern. You can still buy mine right here, tied by me.
This is one of my top three producing signature patterns.
From the time I detect the first Skwala to the late september Sabulosa stones I will be employing this pattern as my anchor fly when I am scouring the trenches. It pairs well with a bank maggot during run-off or with a small polish quill during other hatches. you get the idea. It get’s used a lot. These are also very durable, I have many intact that still reside in my box that I have left-over from last year that I am still using.
New sizes and color options available.
Hands down, this is the single most effective fly in my box. My logs are beginning to show exceptional numbers of fish that this fly has been producing this year. I have not had a day later when I cannot draw a fish to take. I try to use other patterns, but this one always gets put back on.
The OG Krush Deluxe is a fly is also growing in cult status around the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado and beyond. This pattern is best during the spring and autumn when trout and other fish are spawning. I had remarkable success during the autumn 2017 and spring of 2018 with this pattern. Both pink and orange bead headed flies trigger an innate egg eating response in fish.
Deschutes bound anglers should grab plenty of these. I match the exact size and color of many free living caddis species found in her waters. Anglers worldwide are also given the same advice.
Before summer makes its transition into fall, hatches and other bugs dwindle in frequency and size. When this happens, you may be surprised to find stomachs full of cased caddis as the fish look at scavenging on what is available. Behavioral drift also occurs as the caddis seek to establish better feeding territory within the river channel. Either way, trout will respond favorably to a cased caddis imitation drifting amongst the rocks.
A very durable and deep sinking run-off buster.
Many autumn or spring days have started with this fly. Many Autumn or Spring days have also ended with this fly still attached after quality fishing. Comes with a trailer hitch incorporated into the tail to add a dropper fly.
