Bow River Fly Fishing Flies
Fly fishing flies that are effective on the Bow River

Bow River Hookers ... the boats with the bent rods, Bow River fly fishing guide and outfitter. The list of fly patterns that will catch trout on the Bow River is virtually endless, especially when you consider the multitude of possible variations of size and colour for each fly pattern. Some fly patterns can be tied with rubber legs, hackle legs, quill legs, ice dubbing, hair dubbing ... the possibilities go on and on. A complete and thorough list would be a virtual encyclopedia series were all the combinations and variations to be listed.

Amid this massive list of fly patterns, there are some 'go to' patterns that might be considered 'standards' for fly fishing the Bow River. This is not to say that these 'standard' patterns are the only ones you need in your fly tackle arsenal, far from it, but they will provide a starting point and produce catches fairly routinely on the Bow River. A sampling of these flies are explored below.
