The Hornberg is one of those flies with versatility that few others can compete with. Is it a streamer? Yes. Is it a dry fly? Well, yes, it can be. Can you dead drift it like a nymph under an indicator? Yes, you can...the Hornberg is a classic Jack-of-all-trades and is tough to beat. Dating back to the 20s, the Hornberg was first tied in Central Wisconsin by Frank Hornberg. Frank created the Hornberg as an adult caddis imitation, but over the years, it was found that it could be fished a number of ways without changing its classic look of mallard flank wings and a grizzly hackle collar. 


With the Hornberg being able to be fished so many ways, you might ask what it imitates, and the answer there is just as diverse--from sinking it and stripping it upstream to imitate minnows, casting over trout rising to caddis or dragonflies, or just using it as a searching pattern, the Hornberg can be fished to imitate a variety of forage. A fly that you can take to a bass pond, brookie stream, or steelhead tributary, the Hornberg is a classic that we all should carry.
