Early Season Sampler - Good Bugs to Imitate

Tim Flagler put together this neat video showing some of the aquatic life forms that trout feed on in March and April here in the Northeast, and the flies that imitate them.   

All of these flies are available from your local fly shop, or if you are a fly tyer, you can follow the instructions here - the flies are listed in the same order they are shown on the video.  Just click on the name and the video will load:

Simple Scud

Caddis Larva

Chimarra Caddis Larva

Little Black Stonefly Nymph

Vinnie's Isonychia Nymph

Gold-ribbed Hare's Ear Nymph - Beadhead

Soft Hackle Streamer

Tie some up, fish them hard, and sharpen your hooks!
