The WD40 fly is a nymph fly that has risen to prominence over the past 20 years plus. It is one of the most effective flies for fishing midge and blue winged olive eating trout. The WD40 fly is a simple fly that many anglers have come to rely on. The original design is credited to Mark Engler who submitted his design to Umpqua as a signature pattern. He is a pike hunter, but best known as the creator of the original WD-40 fly.
This fly was designed to be an emerging midge and is great for small emerging mayflies including the prolific baetis or Blue Winged Olive. This is an excellent all around Blue Winged Olive emerger pattern that will imitate a number of insect species.
Although it is fished in many regions across the United State, it is a largely popular fly across the Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West region. Fish the fly with a split shot and in a dead drift, let it swing up at the end of the drift as a rising emerger would, and be ready for the strike!
Can be used for catching Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brown trout etc.
Usually available in hook sizes 14, 16, 18,20, 22, 24, 26 and 28 and in colors Black, Brown, Chartreuse, Grey, Olive, Red and Tan
