Humungus Fly


Versatile streamer pattern, featuring a marabou tail and flashy body for movement and attraction.

How it's tied

The Humungus fly is tied using a short or medium shank hook. The tail is typically formed from marabou feathers, which provide natural movement in the water. The body is made using materials such as chenille, tinsel, or other flashy materials, wrapped around the hook. Some variations may incorporate a bead, cone, or dumbbell eyes to add weight and help the fly reach the desired depth, other variations use big foam eyes to make it look like a small baitfish on the surface. As you'll see from the pattern, it's a little similar to the woolly bugger.

What it mimics

The Humungus fly is designed to imitate small baitfish, leeches or large nymphs, which are common food sources for predatory fish. Its lifelike profile, marabou tail, and flashy body materials make it an effective and enticing pattern for targeting fish that feed on these prey items.

Where it's used

The Humungus fly can be used in various water types, both freshwater and saltwater. As indicated it is used for a wide array of predatory fish, from trout in freshwater to sea bass in saltwater.
