Fish Specie: Trout
Fishing Destination: Pyramid Lake
White is an important color for trout. It imitates small Tui chub minnows or Perch Frey. Bright colored flies fished in a two fly rig along with a dark fly is a great way to fish. On days when the current and wind is coming on-shore, fishing this fly instead of a foam fly will get you near the bottom much quicker and can make all the difference.
PYRAMID LAKE WOOLY BUGGERS AND WOOLY WORMS
These are really simple patterns but are tied with a purpose. Most of our Wooly’s date back to the good ole days of the original Reno Fly Shop when Terry Barron tied all the Pyramid shop flies along with Andy Burk and the rest of the gang. These flies have not needed to change. There are some simple specifics. They are tied unweighted because the fast sinking shooting heads we use are enough to keep the flies on or near the bottom. They are also tied with multiple hackles to give body to the fly and also because the Lahontan Cutthroat has sharp teeth and, in this case, you can lose a hackle and keep fishing. They are also tied with a short tail if any at all to try to avoid the common short strikes from the fish.
