When your mind is set on large fish, deep holes, and strip sets, Galloups Zoo Cougar Fly is just what you want on the end of your tippet. Tied by streamer-junkie Kelly Galloup, the Zoo Cougar is one of the first flies that helped him gain fame for being a fly fisherman who makes fooling large trout with big, meaty flies as easy as 1-2-3. The Zoo Cougar is a streamer that was originally tied to imitate the chunky sculpins that carnivorous trout love. Designed to have natural movement and push water, the Zoo Cougar has a marabou tail, flashy body, marabou and mallard wing, and a large spun deer hair collar and head.
The Zoo Cougar comes in a variety of colors so that you can closely match the forage in the water you’re pursuing, and regardless of your choice in color, this is a fly that you can confidently fish in large sizes like 2 and 4. Fish it any day of the year, the Zoo Cougar can be swung downstream and stripped upstream, cast into a logjam or undercut bank, or just slowly worked through a set of riffles. No matter how you fish this iconic fly, you can count on it to be one that produces.
