The ‘Hot Squirrel’ is an attractor-style emerger with exceptional ability to find picky fish. Designed to get down low and swing high, this bug targets every part of the water column and is effective no matter the situation. A fluorescent tungsten bead is complemented by a holographic ribbed body of blended Fox Squirrel and SLF dubbing. Additionally, a split dubbed collar of spiky fibers and SLF provide bugginess and movement. Proper shine, contrast, and volume create a uniquely effective, translucent appearance that will not go unnoticed.
Tied with completion-grade Czech-style hook and either 3.3mm (#14) or 2.8mm (#16) tungsten bead.
Holy Grail Emerger
The ‘Holy Grail Emerger' is an Eclipse all-time favorite, noted for unmatched versatility, productiveness, and consistency. As an emerger-style pattern, the Holy Grail features Hungarian Partridge soft hackle, making it effective during the dead-drift as well as on the swing. A buggy body, pheasant wing pad, and UV hotspot make this fly impossible to resist.
Tied with barbless Czech-style competition-grade hooks and 2.8mm tungsten bead, this fly will sink rapidly, drift properly, and catch fish when nothing else will.
The ‘Squirrel.0’ is an Eclipse twist on the popular Walt’s Worm. Added attractor elements give this fly a super buggy appearance with the ability to get quick attention. Holographic ribbing over a fox squirrel body creates supreme shine and translucence that fish rarely pass up. Additionally, a purple UV tag featured on the tail end will help to tip odds.
Tied with completion-grade claw-point jig hooks and either 2.8 (#18) or 3.3mm (#16) tungsten bead, this fly will sink rapidly, drift properly, and be an effective part of any rig.
The 'Olive Baetis' nymph is a highly regarded pattern that features an Eclipse-preferred color combination. As a staple of the trout diet, small Blue-Winged Olives (BWOs) are an imitation that anglers should always have at the ready. A black wing pad, custom-blended iridescent thorax and segmented body make for a remarkably consistent pattern.
Tied with completion-grade hooks and either 2.8 (#16) or 3.3mm (#14) tungsten bead, this fly will sink rapidly, drift properly, and aid in smooth fighting/landing.
Micro Woolly Bugger
The ‘Micro Woolly Bugger’ is a deadly fly with huge potential. Its versatility and consistency make it useful in any scenario, and it's incredibly fun to fish. As a micro-streamer, its smaller profile results in an easier predatory decision, often outperforming a larger, standard Woolly Bugger. The slight contrast in colors combined with the natural motion of Hungarian Partridge soft hackle give it a uniquely attractive look as well as excellent subsurface action. Its construction allows it to be effective during the dead drift, on the swing, or while being retrieved.
Tied with barbless competition-grade hooks and 3.8mm tungsten bead, this fly will sink rapidly, drift properly, and aid in smooth fighting/landing.

I tied a squirrel flash on my line yesterday and caught a beautiful Brown. These flies get down in the water fast and attract the fish.
Just received my flies from Eclipse Fly Co and they are expertly tied and very fishy. Can’t wait to soak them in my favorite rivers in Nor Cal.
But, they look like winners. Big trout trip next month and they will get a try.
These are truly well tied great flys
Absolutely well tied and beckoning to be used. I know they will work well. Thank you!
