The beetle pattern is quite often overlooked when selecting a dry fly but it's amazing at how effective these little terrestrials can be!
The Battle Beetle was created by combining a number of winning features from other beetles into one complete package. Color contrast, buoyancy and profile are among the top three qualities of the pattern.
This pattern is tied on a size 10 standard dry fly hook, rocks a fluorescent orange hot spot and a bright yellow indicator for easier vision on the water.
This is quickly becoming the number one pattern of the season right now and grabbing a handful while are they available is highly recommended! Fish this during the hot summer months, any time of the day!
