Bird's Nest
Bird's Nest
For most people the old reliable Hare's Ear or Pheasant Tail is their go-to nymph(and either is a great choice). Me, I'll tie on Cal Bird's fly. This is an outstanding pond nymph or caddis pupae.
Cased Caddis
Cased Caddis
Charles E. Brooks imitation that is tied using skunk tail for the body. I won't promise it will keep the skunk off you fishing but it does work really well! I use it in waters where the caddis use pebbles to build thier cases. For stick case builders I use the Peeking Caddis pattern. Weighted.
Dragonfly Muddler
Dragonfly Muddler
This pattern is from the late Eddie Reif of Eddie's Flies & Tackle. The first fly I'll start fishing in the spring on Maine ponds is a dragonfly nymph on a sinking line. Weighted. $2.75
Dredge Bug
Dredge Bug
Gotta love those dragonfly nymphs on ponds! This is a good fly for fishing spring holes.Weighted. $2.50
Jungle Cock Dragon Nymph
Jungle Cock Dragon Nymph
Tied with either an original Olive, Olive/Brown(Pictured), or Peacock/Brown variegated body. Sizes 6-10, Weighted. $2.50
Maple Syrup
Maple Syrup
You can not get any more "Maine" than Alvin Theriault's go-to fly. It should be a standard in any pond arsenal you plan on putting together. Weighted, size #8-10.
Maple Syrup - Red Tail
Maple Syrup - Red Tail
This is becoming a very popular version of the original. Generally just referred to as a "Red Tail". Tied with a tungsten bead.
Mercury Midge
Mercury Midge
This simple fly is a landlock killer. This fly is tied a bit differently than others under the same name. Size #16-20
Otter Nymph
Otter Nymph
This forgotten classic is a simple old nymph yet it fools an awful lot of brook trout for me. The fish on the upper Magalloway regions will testify to that! Makes a good dropper fly fished with a dry.
Peeking Caddis
Peeking Caddis
I love to fish this cased caddis as a point fly in a tandem nymph rig in moving water. Weighted, size #8-12.
Strawman
Strawman
Cased caddis imitation tied using spun and clipped deer hair. A favorite on the Rapid river.
Waldo Worm
Waldo Worm
A standard nymph on the Rapid River. This green caddis larvae accounts for a lot of fish each year. I recommend going with the smaller sizes, however. (#16-20)
