Fell apart after the first fish

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought a few different Umpqua fly packs and did not have a great experience with them. I know some of our local fly shops sell Umpqua flies and I don’t regularly have an issue but both my pheasant tail nymphs completely fell apart after fish number one. Not sure if I just had an unlucky pack or a few ferocious brown trout on the line, but I lost some confidence in these flies.

Umpqua makes some fantastic flies. I have been fishing Umpqua flies for over 20 years, and they are the best quality flies I have purchased. the quality is unmatched as is the selection.
Buy Umpqua and slay the trout.

I have crushed fish before a caddis hatch with these. They are a staple for caddis waters.
