When should I fish with the Green Beetle?

This graph shows trends of when fly fishermen use the Green Beetle to fish with and what hooks are most popular throughout the fly-fishing season.

About the Green Beetle Trout Fly

The Green Beetle is a good imitation of the natural that rides low in the water. These are common food sources for trout, especially when they inadvertently get blown into the water by a sudden breeze.

The beetle's body is made of foam for buoyancy, with peacock herl on the underside and sparse brown hackle.

Expert Tip:

Focus on fishing areas where beetle activity exists, such as along grassy banks and overhanging vegetation where they could naturally fall-in.

The fly can be fished with a twitching retrieve to mimic the erratic movement of a beetle trapped in the surface of the water.
