The Tellico is named after the popular trout fishing river in Tennessee. The direct imitation of this fishing fly is up for debate, however most anglers agree on its strong ability to catch fish. Tying this fishing fly below a productive dry fly and focusing on a dead drift is a great approach. You can feel free to give your rig a few twitches throughout the dead drift too. The Tellico is a productive fishing nymph and can be an excellent choice when your other go-to flies aren?t working.
