    Default AMERICAN WOOLY - Fly of the week - March 22, 2010

    AMERICAN WOOLY

    This is a great pattern for late fall. It can be used anywhere in the country. Bump it off logs or stones, or toss in into that pocket water under an overhanging tree branch. Not only do big trout love it, but it can be tied in smaller sizes for pan fish or in larger sizes for bass. Trim the bottom of the hackle for a lower profile.

    Default American Wooly is destined to become a American Classic Dry Fly

    The "American Wooly" is a simple, yet very striking dry fly pattern. The American Wooly is destined to become a American Classic Dry Fly.

    It is reminisce of other hackle bodied dry fly pattern, yet it still has it own unique shape and markings.

    This is Tom Deschaine's 17th "Fly of the Week" contribution.

    I know that I will be adding some of these to my fly boxes, for this years fishing season. ~Parnelli

    Wow, .. nice one, ... I bet it would work well to "semi-dry" just in the film or under it on a rough stripping retrieve for big brookies up here

    Tom - Thanks for this pattern.

    I thought I would tie some of these to fish as a wet fly. Tom uses a Mustad #94831 Size 6XL . I have a surplus of Mustad 3665A which I believe would work OK for a wet fly version.

    Any comments?

    Thanks, Tim
