Skip Morris Dry Flies:

Mayfly Dry Flies


Morris Mays


These light, simple dry-fly imitations fool wary trout. The different variations imitate specific mayflies. All versions have bright, easy-to-spot wings.

Skip's trusted the Morris Mays for a couple of decades.

Caddisflies


Skaddises


The Skaddises are tough, effective even for wizened trout feeding in clear smooth water, and, for caddis imitations that settle their bodies to the water's surface like real caddisflies, good floaters.

Simple as they are, the Skaddises create a convincing effect trout like. Between the light and dark versions you can cover a lot of caddis.


Effective for hatches of little stoneflies too.


Skaddis Dark

Skaddis Dark Skaddis Dark

Stonefly Dry Flies


Morris Foam Stones


These are not only durable but practically unsinkable! And they offer trout a clean, convincing outline of the two giant western stoneflies of rivers: the salmonfly and the golden stonefly.

Both hatch in late spring to summer with the goldens following on the heels of the salmonflies. Exciting stuff!
