Fly of the Week

@anna_on_the_fly is on the water constantly. She is constantly trying new things -- new flies, new techniques, and new gear. We are grateful that she's an Ambassador for DiscountFlies. And, we're grateful that she shares her knowledge and adventures with us in the "Fly of the Week" (or month during the "off" season) Column.

Below is a listing of the flies that have been featured in our Fly of the Week blog post.

Please note that this is a compilation of flies that have been highlighted at some point in the past in our Fly of the Week blog post. This is not a listing of flies on special this week. Our weekly newsletter, which you can sign-up to receive at the bottom of this page, will highlight weekly fly deals. Perhaps one of our future fly deals should be all of the flies featured in the "Fly of the Week" column...stay tuned!

Fashioned from the Duracell Jig Nymph, this fly is tied to be durable.  The mix of materials is unique: brown ice dub (which looks purple-ish), read wire, and a CDC collar.  While this fly might not look like anything you'll find under a rock, the mix of materials is the right amount of flash and movement to turn heads.  This fly is not a stranger to one-fly competitions....it is that good.  Go for it.

Fly of the Week - Jiggy Mini Leech Black

Based on Colorado's world-class guide and tyer Landon Mayer's Mini Leech, this is a jig pattern that will produce in many scenarios including:
  • High water conditions,
  • Low light,
  • Dead drifted as a point fly,
  • On the swing at the end of a drift, or
  • Stripped, either by itself or as the trailer in a two-fly streamer rig.
Leeches are a high protein meal for fish.  While many of us think about leeches as the large, worm-like slugs we saw in the classic Stand By Me, most freshwater leeches are small, highly active swimmers.  Landon's choice of micro pine squirrel and osterich herl mimic both of these characteristics in a way that is often irresisable to fish.  Consider all colors -- Brown, Black, and Rust.

The mercury flashback pheasant tail is tied with a small highly reflective bead, which gives the appearance of a gas bubble, used by the natural insect to float to the surface.

The pheasant tail pattern is very effective, and the bead makes it even more effective!

This fly is very effective when fished as a dropper fly.
