Learn About This Fly:

Difficulty: Intermediate

Trout sipping dry flies or aggressively taking hoppers can be some of the most exciting fishing an angler can do. The only thing possibly more thrilling is a predator species inhaling a popper on the surface. Depending on the species, this can be an effective way to fish a blitz or when you want that one incredible eat to remember. The Bling Crease Fly is a pattern tied by one of the most talented tyers today, Rupert Harvey, and will certainly bring out the worst in those predatory species.

For this pattern, think back to 2nd grade arts and crafts. The most difficult part of this fly is the physical construction without the bobbin in hand. To follow the true pattern, the coloring and designs should be followed, but do not feel obligated, as it will still have the same movement. Take your time and be patient, as the Bling Crease Fly is one you definitely want to have in your popper box.

Whether fishing for bass in a lake or an exotic saltwater species in the ocean, this popper pattern is going to be your friend. This fly is perfect for those days you have caught more than you can count and want to spice things up. The Bling Crease Fly is a popper that will create some of the best moments in your fishing career and make for stories that won’t need to be exaggerated around the campfire.
