Electric Copper John

Want to buy this fly?

Time: Medium      Difficulty: Moderate      Season: Spring – Fall

Copper Johns are a relatively new pattern, but are an extremely common fly found in many fly boxes. The traditional copper color is fantastic, but if you’re fishing a river with an abundance of caddis, it’s a no brainer to make a greener version! Traditional nymphing or swinging this fly during the spring is a sure way to land some chunky trout or salmon. The bright color is also popular in the fall to trigger those angry strikes!
