Anyone have a fish pellet pattern for stockers. I was using a fly today that was kind of a griffin in brown and had a blast shaking off stockers at a local pond.

I had the same thoughts about tying one that looks like a pellet but I don't know what the pellets look like. I don't fish stocked streams that mutch either.

I posted one with a sperm veil not too long ago. Search for it, it's worth it.

I second this motion.


A pellet is basically dog food for a visual comparison.

I would like to see that fly.
There was a guy fishing across stream from me using a fly he made up himself. He said it was his version of a bread fly.
I couldn't get a good look at it but it was working for him.

i have tied from wine corks that were cut in to pieces and made smaller on a bench grinder. they were then stained with a dark walnut color stain and while the stain was still tacky roll the pellet piece into the shavings from the grinder for some added texture. then just cut a slit in them and glue them to a hook. ta-da.

The pellets look just like a regular fish food pellet you'd buy if you owned chiclids in an aquarium.

Try size 22 mcfly foam egg, dead egg color, and make it dark brown with a brown prismacolor marker.
