STREAMERS

Galloup’s T&A Streamer

  • Articulated marabou streamer pulses with every strip. (1)Black, (2)White – Size: 6
Galloup’s Sex Dungeon
  • This crazy concoction actually comes to life in the water! Equally effective on trout, bass and even northerns. (1)Black, (2)White, (3)Craw-Orange, (4)Olive, (5)Natural, (6)Yellow – Size: 2
  • The Dungeon is a monster fish producer. It has everything going on, and brings out the the worst in big trout.
Galloup’s Butt Monkey
  • Huge streamer with wool-head to push water and dangling rabbit strip providing the swimming action. (1)Rusty-Brown, (2)Olive – Size: 2
  • This fly was designed by Scott Smith of Thunderbay Ontario for giant Brook Trout. The original (Seen on the Cover of Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout) didn’t have lead eyes, but I added them later for a little jigging action. With or with out them, this is one of the best big trout patterns I have ever fished.
Galloup’s Bottoms Up
  • Foam pieces built into the articulated tail make it wiggle wildly as the weighted head plummets. (1)Black, (2)White, (3)Cinnamon, (4)Olive – Size: 2
Galloup’s Zoo Cougar
  • This sculpin imitation sinks slowly, pushes a lot of water as it is jerk stripped thru the water, and the special head design creates a “wounded” motion as well. One of Kelly’s original fly designs that has stood the test of time. (1)Black, (2)Olive, (3)Tan, (4)Yellow, (5)White – Size: 4
  • This fly was designed to imitate a sculpin, and to look a little injured. The fly has no weight and actually is designed to barely sink. The flat head thick collar and mallard flank wing make the fly light so every current that touches it makes it flutter side to side. This fly was designed to fish with a Jerk Strip retrieve and is the single best producer for all sizes of trout that I have ever produced. Colors. Black, Olive, Tan, Gray, Golden Brown, and the original Yellow

Galloup\'s Heifer Groomer

Galloup’s Heifer Groomer

  • Yellow, White, Black, Olive Tan Sizes 6 and 4
  • The Heifer Groomer is the articulated version of the Zoo Cougar. When I first designed this pattern, it did not have the back flank feather, and it was a pretty good fly. However, when Andy Sobota added the rear flank it became a GREAT fly. The Heifer Groomer has taken more fish over 20 inches on the Madison in the last two years than any other. Colors Black, White, Tan, Olive and Yellow. Available in sizes 4 and 6 (articulated)

 

BH Crystal Bugger
  • Our #1 Bugger! Flashy Crystal-Chenille body, weighted Bead-Head takes it deep. Most productive woolly/streamer/leech pattern for lake or stream. Our favorite! (1)Black, (2)Brown, (3)Olive, (4)Purple, (5)Pearl, (6)Chartreuse – Sizes: 8, 10, 12

 

DRY FLIES

F-C Crackleback

  • Developed by Ed Story in the mid 1950’s. The fly and the method(s) to fish it was an instant success. Now fished worldwide. Many will use nothing else! TO FISH: Dress the hackles with floatant and fish dead-drift as a floating terrestrial in the surface film. If no hit near the end of the drift, jerk the fly beneath the surface and skip it across-stream with the rod tip, or strip it back to you with the line-control hand as a moving sub-surface emerger. TO FISH DEEP: Use a full sinking line (or sinking leader system) with a split-shot on the tippet 15″ above the fly. Skip or strip the fly just off stream or lake bottom. EXPECT NEAR INSTANT SUCCESS. (1)Original Pale-Olive, (2)Pale-Yellow, (3)Brown-Spider, (4)Lime, (5)Sulpher-Orange – Sizes: 12, 14, 16

Parachute Adams (fly on right)
