SW Gurgler - #3/0

Solitude Fly Company
$3.95

The Gurgler may be the most popular and successful surface fly designed in recent years, used by anglers all over the world to land a wide variety of sport fish. It is neither a popper nor slider but a very effective in-between type of fly.

As with many popular patterns, flytyers often make their own adaptations to original patterns, and there are many variations.The Gurgler is surprisingly easy to tie and is a great fly to stock your boxes with due to the relative ease in which it is tied and it’s effectiveness.

FLY RECIPE:

HOOK:  Mustad 34011, sizes 4-3/0
THREAD:  GSP 200 Thread, white
BODY:  3mm Fly Foam, white - with five evenly-spaced segments.  Foam should be 1/2" - 5/8" wide for most flies.  Use foam at least 1/8" thick
TAIL:  Very sparse Bucktail or Marabou Plumes, overlaid with five or six strands of pearl Krystal Flash
RIB:  White or Grizzly saddle hackle palmered between segments
CARAPACE OR SHELL:  3mm Fly Foam, color of choice - pulled over body and secured just behind eye.  Trim foam leaving an excess of about 1/2" protruding beyond eye
