Fly Fish Food Foam DriesPublished: 21st June 2022 | Author: Fulling Mill
When it comes to designing new and innovative patterns, Cheech and Curtis of Fly Fish Food have been at the cutting edge for years. As our most prolific Signature Tiers, they have an impressive range of flies in our catalog. Now, as we arrive at the end of June and terrestrial season is on our mind, we wanted to share some of our favorite Fly Fish Food foam dries.
The Stoneflopper is a mashup of patterns. It’s a generalist pattern, and can serve as either a hopper or a stonefly. It’s available in brown and tan, and comes in sizes 6 and 10. Consequently, this is a great pattern to tie on when there are a mix of bugs around, and it’s great for a hopper dropper setup.
This fly is the result of many years of experimentation. It incorporates elements from some of the best attractor dries out there, and combines them into one deadly fly. It’s one of the most versatile and effective attractor patterns out there. We offer this fly in size 16.
It has a funky name, but the Moodah Poodah is an effective fly. And like many of their other patterns, it’s serves multiple purposes. It can serve as a terrestrial, general attractor, and even an emerger. It’s available in sizes 10 and 12, but has a larger counterpart: the Mega Moodah.
This is the larger version of the Moodah Poodah. This larger version was specifically designed to accomodate droppers of varying weights. It’s also very effective when fished as a single terrestrial imitation. The Mega Moodah is available in size 4.
This fly was designed and tested on some of the pickiest fish you’ll ever find. As a result, it’s meant to be a perfect hopper imitation for when the fish are really keyed in on hoppers and have already seen a lot of flies during the season. The Project Hopper is available in size 6.
This fly is almost entirely synthetic. And, like the name suggests, it was designed to be unsinkable. While it’s a great beetle imitation, it can also be used to represent other terrestrials as well. In addition, this is an especially great option for fishing rough water as it doesn’t get waterlogged. You can find this fly in sizes 8 and 10.
The Black Toast Ant excels when fish are keying in on small terrestrials falling from the trees. As a result, it’s best fished tight up underneath branches and leaves in the shade, where you’re likely to find willing trout. This fly is available in sizes 10 and 14.
