Aaron designed the Stubby Beetle on the heels of his popular Stubby Ant pattern. Using similar materials and design elements, the Stubby Beetle is another great terrestrial pattern that floats well, is visible, and most importantly, provides a juicy profile to any summer trout waiting for a snack to float by. The combination of foam body and hackle legs provide plenty of buoyancy, and the full but stubby wing provides visibility without significantly altering the profile of the fly when viewed from underneath. The Hare’e Ice Dub body imitates the natural sheen found on many beetles, and the Umpqua XT050 Stubby T hook provides the perfect platform with a slightly heavy wire and wide gap that hooks and holds fish well. Beetles are often overlooked by many anglers in favor of large hoppers, but trout sure love them, so make sure to add a few Stubby Beetles to your box for your late-summer fishing!
