The Story

The Trico hatch can be one of the most prolific feeding periods you will experience, but the flies are very difficult to see; the fish can be picky and it can be frustrating. This indicator fly pattern sets your flies out from the rest, so you can see them and yet this Trico fly pattern has the realism necessary to be successful. Color, Black.

Sizes: 20, 22, 24.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better built than expected A river full of trout after tiny flies and ignoring stoneflies and caddis woke me to the fact I have few 20-24 ones in my box, much fewer with parachutes that I can see. So when Orvis had a fly sale with so many ideal options and free shipping, I ordered some of several types, mostly Trico imitations. When they arrived, I was pretty amazed at the quality and consistency of their construction, despite not being American made. In fact few flies I've purchased hand-tied in fly shops across the West are as well-built. Although I often cower at Orvis prices, this was a purchase with pretty decent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly Indicator really helps see fly in shadows without any loss of performance -- at least a beautiful, native rainbow didn't mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Choice You can actually see it! Great when they're wanting something small. This is a must have in your box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nicely tied small fly I usually tie my own, but when I can pick up a nicely tied parachute dry fly in a small size on sale, I can't pass it up! I've not used the indicator style yet, but I've had good luck with the regular, so I'll see how this works in the spring.
