    If you've ever fished soft riffles and clean pools, you know that big,

    hungry trout love to lurk in these sweet spots. These big fish love to

    hold their positions in the soft current, waiting for that perfect

    moment to rise and take a sip on a helpless crippled sulfer mayfly.

    The Mayfly Cripple Limestone is an excellent imitation of the sulfer

    mayfly in the emerger or cripple life stage. It's also the perfect fly

    pattern to have strung on your leader when the water is cool and you've

    spotted the first few of these pale yellow mayflies fluttering off the

    water's surface. With a whack of stiff, hollow fibers and a puff of CDC

    feathers for a tail, this fly rides right in the surface film and shows

    a realistic profile that will tantalize even the most wary trout!
    • A great standard pattern for anyone who regularly fishes for trout in moderate to fast water
    • Sulfer imitation in the emerger or cripple 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 and pocket water
    • Play with line tension during the drift to simulate a nymph struggling to emerge
    • Traditional wet fly swing techniques will also yield good results in fast water situations
    • This fly’s wing post is highly visible, so fish it confidently in fast water!
    • SIZE 16
    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.
