Hairwing Western Green Drake

There are times, particularly on western rivers when the water is a bit more rough and tumble and you need a more substantial fly to stay up on the surface. This big hair wing drake is just the ticket if the river is brawny and the trout are big. Color, Natural.Size: 10, 12.

Great Quality!,

"I'm not a Fly tier, so I buy all my flies and I love Orvis Flies in General, I've ordered other brands and not been happy. Orvis Flies hold up better, trip after trip where some of the cheaper flies I've bought don't last and are coming apart after 40-50 casts. These Western Green Drakes are excellent quality, symmetrical, all uniform size and quality materials."

Effective in Yellowstone,

"This fly worked exceptionally well during September in Yellowstone.
While it wasn't my best producer....it was a very worthwhile fly to have in my collection...I will be purchasing another dozen before going back to Yellowstone during that time of year."

"Just returned from Montana and this was perfect for Slough Creek, that is, if you hit the hatch dead on!!"

Great fly,

"My experience has been that larger trout love this fly. I like to fish this fly in medium to large streams in the seam or tail of a pool. It floats beautifully and is a breeze to track on the water. I keep both a 10 and 12 of this fly and fish it with consistent results. Highly recommend it!"
