Big Trout Only
Big Trout Only
Popular nymph in the Baxter State Park region and Aroostoook County trout ponds. Fish it slowly on a sinking line. Size #6
Big Trout Only - Salamander
Big Trout Only - Salamander
A change up that sometimes produces when the Big Trout Only isn't. Size #6
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. Tan or Olive.
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
Floating Dragon
Floating Dragon
Designed to be fished on a sinking line so it hovers, crawl it towards shore or over/around weed beds. Sizes #6-8, $3.25
Gartside's Sparrow - Hexagenia
Gartside's Sparrow - Hexagenia
My version of Jack Gartside's Sparrow nymph is a solid producer when fished before or during Hexagenia hatches. I'll fish it on a sinking or sink-tip line with slow pulls to imitate the swimming nymph. Size #6, $2.75
Halfback
Halfback
An excellent generic stillwater nymph for searching, I think it covers the damsel and possibly even dragon nymphs. I like sizes #10 or #8 best.
Ian's Brass Ass
Ian's Brass Ass
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. Size #8
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
Molasses
Molasses
It's not Maple Syrup, it's Molasses! Size #8, Weighted
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.
Rainbow Warrior
Rainbow Warrior
RS-2
RS-2
Sizes #16-22
Sawyer's Killer Bug
Sawyer's Killer Bug
The other fly from the creator of the classic Pheasant Tail, this nymph has a definite cult following. A very simple and effective fly and an excellent representation of the Glossosoma caddis or scuds.
Strawman

Cased caddis imitation tied using spun and clipped deer hair. A favorite on the Rapid river.
Sucker Spawn
Sucker Spawn
At the right time and in the right place this fly can be poison! Size #16

Twist Nymph
Twist Nymph
Gary LaFontaine's stillwater generic nymph.
Waldo Worm
Waldo Worm
A very popular nymph for use 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)
