The Top 5 Trout Flies to Get the Job Done

The top 5 trout flies are featured and may be really all you need for most trout fishing situations.

Twig ‘N’ Timber Archery and Outdoors goes over their picks for the top 5 trout flies that you need to get a tight line in almost any fishing situation.

It just goes to show you really don’t need that many patterns to get on some good fishing. My fly boxes are overflowing with literally hundreds of different patterns and types but you can be a truly proficient fly angler with just a couple.

These top flies cover everything from dry, wet to streamer flies, which will allow you to cover most of the water on rivers and lakes. Often referred to as guide flies, they are not overly complex and the ones you want in various sizes when you head out.

Even better, just learn how to tie these five patterns, and you can crank out as many as you need and ultimately be successful on the water.

You don’t need to have 100s of different flies, which is a blessing in disguise, keep it simple and disciplined and you will do just fine at your favorite fishing locations.
