The Hornberg fly is truly a time tested fishing fly. Versatility alone makes this a great trout fly for any anglers fly box. This pattern in smaller sizes (12-16) can be fished dry; dead drifted, skated or twitched to imitate egg-laying caddis. In larger sizes the Hornberg is a fantastic fry pattern that fishes well sub-surface with a stiff and bulky head that grabs the attention of any trout. Useful in most conditions, from a Mother?s Day caddis hatch to low water fall streamer fishing.
