Will This Thing Catch Fish?? Upside Down Bug!!!

Since I can’t get out on the water I thought I would bring the reality of fly fishing a little closer to me. I get lots of email alerts from different Outdoor Outlets and one of my favorite is BreamBugs. One of my fly fishing buddies put me on this company last year. I was really impressed with the quality of their poppers and nymphs. These flies seemed to take more punishment and will hold up longer especially the Boogle Bugs brands after the wear of teeth marks. They just recently started handling a few trout flies; check out some of the patterns below. A really unique bug that they sell is The Upside Down Bream Bug. What makes this fly special is the structured areas one can actually fish without getting tangled up and hung on branches. In fact I ordered some of these bugs last night and will be giving a report soon on their production. Take a look at the Upside Down Bugs and Trout patterns below and give me your opinion.
I would like to thing this could be a good trout pattern
This is one awesome bug, anytime chartruse is used it is a winner
Not as fancy but deadly
A lot of pattern for this dry, which means more float time and less floatant
Unique color combo for this PAdams---like the green
Hares Ear, always effective
Check out this LINK to see the fish that this companies flies have produced.

I would think the hook up ratio would increase and snag ratio decrease with a hook pointing up.

Cool stuff, I like out of the box thinking with fly designs thanks for sharing.

Once it get closer to Summer, I'll check out what they have. Got them bookmarked.

Bill, those first two flies look so "buggy" I'd say they'd catch just about anything.

Look like fish couldn't resist them. Especially liked the PAdams, could have used some of them today.

I will be doing a report on the Upside Down Nymphs in the next couple of weeks. I will try them in structure and see how they perform. Thanks for the comment

I really like the fullness of the PAdams dry. I will probably get a couple of those. Thanks for the commnet

The black/red and the chartruse/white Upside Down Bugs are winners anytime. I looking forward to trying both out in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the comment

I am getting the Upside Down Bugs and I think these little jewels will produce big time. This is the fly you should try in the lake you are fishing. I would venture to say those trout out that way haven't seen this pattern. I also think the sink ratio would be fast becasue of the weighted head. Thanks for the comment

I'd be giving them a try, they look good.

Howard
Thanks for the comment, and I will give them the try.

Only one way to find out if they work...

A lot carp flies are tied like that. Carp often pick the fly up off of the bottom. Better hook-up ratio if the point of the hook is riding up. Great looking flies. Thanks for sharing them.

I think those are all excellent looking patterns. Thanks for doing the research. I look forward to the results. Thanks for sharing. Tight Lines.

I like to find new companies who handle flies, and this one is among the best. Thanks for the comment

I hope to find out sometimes the later part of this week. Thanks for the comment

You have told me something I didn't know. I really like the Upside Down concept, mainly because of the structure. Thanks for the comment

Those flies will work well. I have lots of experience with this "Backward Type" of fly. They are killer patterns on wild trout.
"Reversed Emergers"

Blake Hamilton said...

i forever am impressed with all the cool flies you find. from now on im gonna send you my money to stock my fly box Bill!

I guess I am a fly junkie, I like to find flies that I think will get the attention of the fish, not your common variety. These Upside Down flies are not your common variety. Thanks for the comment

Glad to hear they will work for trout. I will be giving them a try on the tailrace as soon as the generation settles down. Thanks for the comment
