Grizzly King Squirrel Tail

Grizzly King Bucktail - Squirrel Tail
 
The Grizzly King wet fly was first invented by James Wilson in 1840.
 
Grizzly King typically draws a strike soon after landing on the water or at the end of a drift on the swing. It is an attractor fly that mimics aquatic insects as well as terrestrials falling from the stream banks and trees.
 
For me (Jeff Layton) this has always been a great swinging fly for Rainbows and Brook Trout. Also catches Browns... Also works great in Still Water/Lakes.

Copper Bead Head Carey Bugger

The Carey is by far one of the most popular lake fishing patterns in British Columbia. It is an exceptional trolling fly, and a great searching pattern.

Swing this fly, Still water/lake fish this fly. It works. An attractor variation of the Carey Special. 

Size 6 hook

Tied with Marabou Tail, and Pheasant Collar. 

The Carey Special traces its roots back to 1920 when Colonel Tom Carey and Dr. Lloyd Day collaborated on a pattern originally called the Monkey Faced Louise or Dredge. Their design featured a dense pheasant rump hackle and a dubbed fur body from a dead marmot Dr. Day had found on his drive to rendezvous with Colonel Carey for a fishing trip. Since this initial prototype, the Carey Special has undergone many mutations. Still, the fly’s core remains the same: a pheasant rump tail and hackle, coupled with a body using a variety of materials.

Pip Squeak Natural

RIO’s Pip Squeak Mouse is designed to look and perform like a real swimming mouse.  The flesh colored legs kick under tension and simulate the frantic mouse moving through the water.  The flesh colored ears give the angler a better visual as the fly tracks through the run.  The bunny collar provides the right amount of “wet mouse” look without adding additional water weight.  It also replicates the white chin that are on most mice.  The ample foam keeps this mouse up on top churning out a realistic wake.  The wire stinger material means you can also fish this for your favorite toothy fish, like Pike, and since this is tied with a #4 stinger hook, you’ll hook more of those short striking fish.  Whether you’re chasing trophy Rainbows in Kamchatka or Alaska...or running night ops for big browns in your favorite local stream, RIO’s Pip Squeak Mouse will improve your chances of making the connection. 3” long.
