    If you want to find your very own slice of traditional dry-fly-only

    fishing in the English Chalk Stream style, look no further than Hot

    Creek, near Mammoth Mountain in California’s Eastern Sierra. The cool,

    mineral rich waters of Hot Creek Ranch’s fly fishing only section have

    become known for their giant and healthy brown and rainbow trout, and a

    big reason for the popularity of this destination has to do with the

    loving advocacy of its former river keeper, Bob Brooks.

    The Brooks’ Sprout Emerger – Pale Morning Dun is an

    excellent imitation of an emergent PMD mayfly. It’s highly visible and

    can be fished effectively on light or heavy terminal tackle in soft or

    rough water. Next time you venture to your favorite spring creek, pack

    a row of Sprout Emergers in your fly box and give them a try.
    • This fly pattern was developed by Bob Brooks while seving as river keeper of and guiding clients on Hot Creek, a spring creek near Mammoth Mountain, California
    • The Brooks’ Sprout Emerger series is defined by the pattern’s severe bend in the hook shank along with the white foam thorax
    • Pale Morning Dun imitation in the emerger life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Fish on a dead drift in medium to fast water; perfect for riffles, runs, and tailouts
    • Fishing this fly on the swing during a prolific PMD hatch can also yield excellent results
    • Giving the fly a few twitches during the drift can simulate the struggle of an emergent insect and attract opportunistic trout

    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
