Newbury’s Dirty Hipster
An excellent attractor euro nymph fly pattern that accurately imitates everything from mayflies to stoneflies.
- Additional information
Some flies just have that “look” about them that screams fish-catching machine. With rubber legs, flash in the body, and pronounced tail, this one certainly fits that bill. This is the classic attractor pattern that works great on either a nymph rig or in a dry-dropper setup. The dirty hipster is extremely effective when fished near the bottom, so it can bounce off rocks right in front of the nose of a trout. If you’re looking for that extra sink rate in the fastest water, pinch a little split shot about 6 inches ahead of the fly.
Rather than imitate naturals, this pattern is an attractor fly, which is designed to grab and hold a fish’s attention. In my own nymphing rigs, I either fish this single or coupled with another fly or two. When paired with another fly, I always make sure to put this nymph at the bottom of the rig.

Good looking quality flies @ a competitive price! Now if work will get out of the way I could review their effectiveness!
Another great fly from the folks at the Fly Crater. I use a tan scud with it on my nymph rig and they go for the Hipster every time .Remember to use the Hipster as your bottom fly. Seems like they cant resist it.
Seemed to generate action with the panfish. tried it out on a tough angling day with strong northwesterly breezes and not much happening on the surface or underneath. Finally coaxed a few good sized bluegills to bite.
Using the Newbury Dirty Hipster with Rainbow Warrior or Tungsten Jig American on the point works like a champ every time I go out for wild browns and rainbows. Thanks.
Fished this in many different waters and it’s always a hit. Trout can not resist this fly.
