Realistic Hellgrammite Fly

Our Realistic Hellgrammite Fly looks like a real insect and will easily fool the fish with its lifelike appearance. It has the shape and size of the real hellgrammite larvae, the segmented body and rows of long, prominent legs/filaments on each side – all made out of the flexible, durable material. The pattern features strong mandibles (jaws) on the head and authentic body markings. To enhance the ‘movement’, dubbing has been added to the bottom of the fly. Given its size and appearance, this fly will not be easily passed by the hungry fish.

Realistic Hellgrammite Fly comes in two most-widely spread colors: Brown and Black and hook size #4.

Hellgrammite Fly Fishing

Hellgrammites represent a larval stage of dobsonfly (Corydalus cornutus), aquatic insects and members of the order Megaloptera. As adults, dobsonflies are not so significant for angling. On the other hand, their larval stage is quite important, especially given the size of these species and the fact that no fish will easily pass such a chunky meal. Dobsonflies usually hatch just above water, on the rock ledge or an overhanging branch. These insects spend two to three years as larvae. Hellgrammites live in rocky, fresh, well-oxygenated running streams and usually can be found around bottom rocks and debris. They are predators and feed on other insects and are famous for being able to crawl (“swim”) through water in both directions – forward and backward. As they spend most of their time feeding on the river-bottom and under debris, they are most vulnerable during their behavioral drift. Dead-drifting, swinging and tumbling the fly along the bottom would be the best techniques when fishing these fly patterns.
