If you’re after explosive results on dry flies, look no further than our collection of terrestrials. Terrestrials are a cult favorite way to catch fish on dry flies. Many anglers find them to be a very exciting and productive way to fish. If you love fishing during late spring and summertime, you simply can’t go without some terrestrials in your fly box. Plus, these flies aren’t just for spring and summer - stomach content studies on trout have shown that land insects are a dominant trout food not only in August, but also in May through November and even December!
Terrestrial animals are defined as any animal that lives mostly on land, and these insects can be found in abundance all over the United States and beyond. Most terrestrial insects hatch in either late spring or early summer, so during this time, be sure to stock up on terrestrial flies in order to maximize your fly fishing results. Look around, pay attention to what’s out there, and match it. You won’t regret it.
Grasshoppers, ants, beetles, cicadas, crickets - they are all irresistible to fish. All anglers headed to the water during the late spring and summer months should not only have the right flies in their box to represent these bugs, but they should also have a good understanding of how to best fish with them. If you have any questions about our terrestrial collection or how to use them, feel free to contact us any time.
If you’re a fan of summertime fishing, our recommendation is to be sure that you have a few terrestrials in your fly box at all times, and use them! Many anglers go their entire fishing career without using their terrestrials, and then wonder why their fishing was never as good as it should have been.
