Or, y'know, glue pellets to hooks.

Or, egg sack material to bind pellets together and just stuff 'em on the hook.

Oh. That doesn't count? I bet fish don't mind.

Eons ago,when I Was a regular in your lovely state I caught quite a few fish,in the spring on a clipped hair pattern size 16-needed a micro shot to get it down.Can't remember if it was elk or antelope.
Anyway some forty years later I find I wasn't an instant expert-I was just using a pellet fly.
Thanks for disillusioning me guys-lol

I realize it is in vogue on this forum to extol the virtues of pellet flies, but I suggest that your time is better spent tying flies that will work for a longer period of time on a wider variety of waters, stocked or wild.
Hares ear's, buggers, EHC, PT's etc. are all wildly effective on stockers and work on virtually every trout stream I fish. If I was convinced I needed a pellet fly to catch a fresh stocked trout I would... ...use a beetle which I've already tied dozens of.

secound on the spun hair fly i mine in a mule deer hair two different sizes one about the size of an altoid and the other the size of a 1/8 bead . the larger i sink and the smaller i let float . i find that they are really only effective for a short time as the go to food source after a while i think any pattern you had on would be eaten as they get used to eating al natural

Why tie a pellet fly? Just grab a container of mealies and have at it. Use a fly rod and call it fly fishing. (insert smiley face here)

Take a handful of fish food pellets. Wet them and smush it into a paste. Make a brown dubbing loop fly. Then swish it around in the pellet paste. Let dry. fish it.... remarkable fly for pellet heads. Even the big 'bows around DonnyBeav's place. I call it my "FU" fly.

We did alot of work at a hunting camp that had a pond with trout they bought. Tried a bunch of dif. flies no soap, they kept a trash can of pellets so they were well fed. Got the idea to spin a pellet fly to see what would happen, bam into fish.
