Any time is dry fly time — somewhere!

Recommended Waterwisp® Patterns by Region

Blizzard hatches, masking hatches, spinner falls. As they say in computer-speak, WYSIWYG. (What you see is what you get.) Slurpers, sippers, scum-suckers: they're all out there waiting for the right fly at the right time in the right way. 

Some Waterwisps® will work almost anywhere at certain times. These include three of our best attractor patternsóAdams, Olive-Bodied Adams and Silver Dun; our Wulffs, and our terrestrialsóbeetles, ants and hoppers. 

Here's a suggested list of some other Waterwisp® patterns to fool the most persnickety, selective trout, arranged by U.S. region. However, most of these patterns will also work well abroad.
