I went fly fishing for my first time ever and used the black/purple chubby Chernobyl with a missile nymph trailing it. I came up on a deep hole in the tiny creek that I was fishing while using a wooly bugger and I could see trout coming in and out of the hole. I casted that Wooly bugger at least 50 times with no bites. I switched back to the chubby Chernobyl and missile nymph setup and on my second cast I caught this beast. He nailed the chubby Chernobyl. He was 17 inches long. Unfortunately I didn’t have a scale so couldn’t weigh him. If you look closely at the pic you can see the chubby Chernobyl still in his mouth. I hope all of my future fly fishing adventures are as successful as my first. I already ordered more of these and plan to get all my future flys from The Fly Crate. Thanks for the awesome flys!!!
I've had a subcription to The Fly Crate now for quite a few months. At first I had the Bass fly box and recently switched over to the Trout box without incident. Great flies and even better customer service!
The craftsmanship is very nice. The quality in all the flies that I purchased was great. Will definitely purchase again
Been out twice now and used this as the point fly. Caught 22 with 18 taken on the blowtorch. Definitely should have a bunch in your box. In fact I just ordered more. Here’s a few of the fish which were 19-22 inches.
This fly subscription for me is the best deal around. I love that I can pick the flys I get every month, it allows me to refill my gaps in my collection, and also allows me to try new patterns I otherwise would have tried. The Fly Crate is my sole supplier of flys, everything I need I choose with my subscription. The price is the best part too, for $20 I get $30worth of gear! Doesn’t get better than that!
Recent trip to my local streams, caught 12+ rainbows/browns with sexy walts. These are highly effective in a euro-nymphing setup.
I do a lot of steelhead fishing and this fly is great for those finicky fish. I definitely recommend.
Great craftsman ship. Very nice detail. Very fast shipping. Great experience.
This is a great fly to fish off the bottom and it really gets down to the fish. It never gets hung up. Great quality.
Great detail. This looks like a very versatile fly can’t wait to use it.
Very well made fly box. I needed something durable and reliable and it looks like it will do the trick. Communication was great. It came sooner than expected. Great experience.
I was putting my flies into my box, and realized that your flies are better than post fly. 2 different sizes of the same fly is WAY better than only 1 fly in 1 size. They want some cake for the guide series that gives you a double of the same fly in the same size..haha... keep at it guys, you impressed me.
This fly is a go to in my fly box. It’s one of those flies you put on when you’re trying to understand what the trout might be eating.
I really like this subscription as it gives me the flexibility to pick the flys and equipment I want and not receive a box which is half full of things I don’t need or use. Its the best of both worlds for sure!!
These jig flies are awesome to bounce off rocks for smallies. Really well made and won’t get hung up
I love this place! Great values, instructional tips and quick delivery. My order arrived quickly and everything was as advertised. I especially love the new "Mix and Match" subscription. Thanks a ton!
Perfect tools for the trade. Can’t wait to get in the water
I have used this during the Covid19 pandemic, which forced me to fish solo in the Twin Cities. Many bus trips and Uber, lugging my pared-down gear to & from deserted fishing holes around town. Not exotic, but enjoyable nonetheless-- and this box served me well for the selection of flies I needed.
I began with the monthly fly crate subscription and was never disappointed by the quality or selection prepared by Nathaniel and the Fly Crate team Now I am a mix and match member choosing those flies that are particular to the variety of water we have in Missouri One again great quality with superior service from the Fly Crate Team. Many Thanks!!
This is THE go to fly on the Guadalupe River, not sure where the fish are? Tie on a Rainbow Warrior and swing a few, you'll find em. Ordered for an upcoming trip cause I didnt have any in my box. Great Price, Great Product, cant wait to get em wet!
I havent Fished these yet, however they look great as far as i can tell. i joined the fly of the month club bass for 16.99 a month (found a coupon) to start filling out my fly collection as i am new to fly fishing. the last 2 times i wend out on my boat i couls see everything hiting the bugs on the top water and the bass seem to be ignoring my lures so i got me a kasking starter combo and a fly box subscription and they seem to be nicely made, tied tight and have sharp hooks. i will see how they fish soon. cicada fly size 4 and 6, danncing ffrog 2 and 6, crayfish black eyes 4 and 6
This pink bead head pheasant tail will catch trout, period. I’ve used it in 3 rivers throughout VA and NC and it produces.
When the bite is slow I throw on the squirmy wormy and pretty much always get some action. These are also very durable, the flies hold up even after dozens of eats.
If there was a dictionary with a definition of a Trico spinner, it would have a picture of these little beauties.
