pyramid-holo-wing-white

Color: White

Size: #4

The traditional Pyramid Lake woolly worm with a little added flash for a wing can sometimes make all the difference.

Imitates: This fly has no specific imitation, it does however catch plenty of big cutthroat.  The tapered body makes it a good silhouette match for small fish such as tui-chub, Sacramento perch, and cui-cui in addition to larger dragon fly nymphs.

Useful for: Retrieving behind a sinking shooting head or fast sinking line along the sandy beaches of Pyramid Lake.

Tricks/Techniques: The general rule of dark flies in overcast weather and bright flies in sunny weather can be a great starting point for woolly worm selection. The Pyramid Lake Holo Wing is great fished in addition to a second woolly worm in contrasting color, beetle, bottle rocket, or tadpole. This fly is tied without additional weight so that when retrieved along the sandy bottom it doesn’t dig in and dull the hook point. Two or three saddle hackles are preferred that have stiff barbs near the tip of the feather and webby fibers near the stem. This helps to prevent any digging of the hook point in the sand, makes it much more durable and able to shed a hackle or two on sharp teeth, and moves a good amount of water while still having an incredible undulation when retrieved. When the bottom becomes too overgrown to successfully strip woolly worms, try stripping multiple beetles, tadpoles or bottle rockets.
