Not so different than your inability to refuse a cheeseburger, trout simply can't resist a juicy, little beetle when given the chance, so get ready to slay this summer with the Montana Fly Company Jake's Gulp Beetle 6-Pack. These foam flies float high to give hungry fish the impression that an unfortunate beetle has just fallen in, which means you should be prepared for all types of trout to greedily gobble up these versatile terrestrials come mid-summer.

Beetles are a great all around terrestrial pattern. I love using them, especially when fish aren't keying in on hoppers specifically. The Jakes Gulp is a really simple and reliable beetle pattern with a little hi-viz orange foam. Everyone should have a few beetles in their box.
