what flies do i have here?
 
hey guys, i've been fly fishing for few month now, all is good,
but recently i found few large flies *(im guessing size 10-14) but i dont know what they are: if you can help name them and what fish do they mainly work on?
btw in picture #2 fly on the very far right *(some kind of attractor) i've used it once on owens river in CA, and hooked a monster Rainbow which i didnt land. but it was large. *(i've had 13" trouts that i landed, but this rainbow felt if not double the size :eek: )
thanks guys :fishing:

In the first photo L-R:

1. Hornberg
2. Hornberg
3. Wooly Worm- Red Tailed

2nd. photo L-R:

1. Montana Nymph
2. Stimulator
3. Stimulator

The last pattern, I do not know. but it looks like "too much stuff" on a hook..:lol2:

Hornbergs, in Olive, have taken one or two fish for me on the Lower Owens, in the Fall. They imitate one of the bait fish present in the biomass...

Hornbergs are kind of an all purpose fly in that they're not quite a streamer but not really a wet fly either. They can even be fished as a dry.
I use 'em a lot and on a recent trip they were so popular with the fishies that I had one on for nearly a entire week.:D

The last one is a Double Yellow Humpy, never seen one with rubber legs myself though.

Re: what flies do i have here?
 
thank you guys,
so do i understand this correct then:
1st photo L-R
1. Hornbergis this DRY or WET Fly
2. HornbergDRY or WET?
3. Wooly Worm- Red TailedDRY or WET?

2nd. photo L-R:
1. Montana Nymph so this will sink and drag along the bottom like all nymphs right?
2. Stimulatorconfirmed
3. Stimulatorconfirmed, ill try it again this weekend if i go back up to Owens river near Mammoth this weekend in same spot where i had the monster hooked, just right below the Damn

btw what exactly is a WET FLY,, does it float just not on top of the water?
and WET FLY is not same as NYMPH right?

thanks, that last one is really big, i cant imagine i'll see myself using it any time soon.
2 in the middle of top 2 photos are also very big, probably too big for where i fish. (wooly worm & Montana Nymph)

1 the montana isn't a heavy nymph...will sink but not drag along the bottom...except if it's a few feet deep:)

Do some homework HERE:

StevenOjai's Homepage

Steve's site has a wealth of information on FF the Eastern Sierras...

I'd probably get it wrong so:

WET FLY :

Fly Fishing : Techniques and Tactics of Wet Fly Fishing


NYMPH:

Fly Fishing : Techniques and Tactics of Nympyh Fishing

Hope this helps...

Re: what flies do i have here?
 
Generally, nymphs imitate that phase in aquatic insects lives, the nymphal phase, while wet flies may imitate nymphs or other insects, or they could imitate other things a fish may eat, even possibly small baitfish. Although, there is quite a bit of overlap, and there are many patterns now that could be classified as either, or. I believe, that it's probable, that early wet fly patterns were attempts at imitations of naturals, but the materials available or even the science available may have limited how exact they ended up as actual imitations. Nymphs are later developments as both materials & information about aquatic insects became available.
