The Brindle Chute
What in the world is the Brindle Chute Fly? This fly was originally designed by Chuck Stranahan for the hecuba mayfly hatch that occurs late summer on the Bitterroot River in Montana. This is no hatch specific fly, however. It truly resembles a very wide range of aquatic insects and has turned into a fantastic searching pattern.
While it may have originated in the West, I’ve caught plenty of fish on it on East Coast Rivers as well. This has quickly become one of my go to flies when nothing else seems to be working. Brook Trout fisherman will love this pattern as well as Brookies just seem to love this bug.
Remember, we only have this one earth. Take care of her. Pack it in, Pack it out.
