No other insect is hated by fly fisherman like the inch worm.

Stink bugs, water skippers or white faced hornets

Yellow jackets are the worst, especially when they get inside your waders. Worst day of fishing ever.

My buddy has a little saying he likes to use when the fishing gets shitty, "when in doubt, weenies out". It usually works and can save ya from the skunk

Confession time. I have never caught a fish on the green weenie. I'll go hang my head in shame now.

Why all the hate on the weenie?

I used to catch a lot of fish on GW's. I don't really fish them anymore. I've found a chartreuse SJW to be just as effective and even quicker to tie. I fish them at any point in the water column necessary. When trout are looking up, fishing one as an unweighted dropper behind a caddis can work really well.

Inchworms are present in the summer. Here is some good info and pics:

Now Green Sedges / Caddis (Rhyacophila) larva and pupa are present in the spring and in the water. Here is some good info and pics:

Other Caddis:

No one knows what the trout "thinks" any fly looks like and why a trout will hit or not hit a fly.

If the weenie fails, you can be sure the wooly bugger hatch is probably on...

One of my favorite dry/dropper set ups is a size 14 CDC & Elk with an unweighted size 16 Green Weenie dropped off of the bend of the dry. Love this as a searching set up when nothing in particular seems to be happening, particularly on a wild brook/brown trout stream. Probably catch few more on the GW than the dry fly but results can be close to 50/50 if the fish are looking up and you see that occasional rise. Great to fish in skinny, faster water where the hits can be serious. I occasionally even double up when fishing this combination.
