The Michigan Wiggler

Sometimes people come into the shop with the most amazing fly patterns. I usually ask people to bring their fly box inside anyway before the jump and start buying new flies. It just seems crazy to me to think of selling people flies if they already have patterns in their box that are perfect for fishing on the South Platte at the time. I realize this strategy might not seem to be the most effective approach for making a profit but hey – I’m not going to sell someone a bead head pheasant tail or an elk hair caddis if they already own twelve of them. Plus there are days in South Park where anything you throw at them will catch a trout On those days especially, it's a great idea to grab that fly you bypassing and lob it out there. Use up all your old beat up flies. Have no idea what this one is for? Now's the time to use it.
