Umpqua Gold Bead Prince Nymph - 2 Pack, 14

Umpqua Gold Bead Prince Nymph - 2 Pack, 14

This is a great pattern for any time you would fish streamers. Rivers and stillwaters. Whether you're hitting the bank from a drift boat, swinging a run, or even dead-drifting under an indicator. Works well for bass too!

Stonefly Nymph - Pat's Rubber Leg by Solitude, Olive/Brown / #8

Aka jimmylegs or "turd." Whatever you want to call it, this stonefly nymph pattern is straight up FISHY. Go to any fly shop in the west and there's a good chance you'll see a bunch of these in their fly section, because rubber legs flat out work! Use on any larger river, particularly freestones, where stoneflies are on the menu!

Nice Big Stonefly pattern. Works great as a top fly in a 2-fly rig. Good for trout.

Umpqua Tungsten Jigged Hare's Ear 2 Pack

Umpqua Tungsten Jigged Hare's Ear 2 Pack

When you don't know what the fish are eating, this fly is tried and true to catch fish. The tungsten head helps the fly to get down deep in fast current! An essential fly for anyone euro nymphing!

The tungsten jig head hooks are great for getting these down in deeper pools!

Tigger Bass Popper by Solitude, #4 (with Weed Guard)

Tigger Bass Popper by Solitude, #4 (with Weed Guard)

$4.49

Poppers make lots of movement in the water that drive bass crazy and want to strike! This is great for catching large mouth and small mouth bass in lakes, ponds and canals.

Jawbreaker // #1 Selling Bass Fly by Solitude, Olive

Jawbreaker // #1 Selling Bass Fly by Solitude, Olive

$3.33

This fly produces! It has great tail action which causes the bass (large and small mouth) to notice the skitter. It is great for lakes, rivers, and ponds - it does it all! You can even use it in streams for trout.
