Invicta Fly


The Invicta fly is a beautiful and distinctive wet fly, primarily used to target trout.

How it's tied

Crafting the Invicta fly involves a short or medium shank hook. The body is created using bright yellow floss or dubbed fur, wrapped around the hook shank to achieve a slim shape. Silver wire or tinsel serves as the ribbing material, adding segmentation and a subtle glint to the body. The tail comprises a small bunch of often yellow fibers.

A key element of the Invicta fly is the wing. It's fashioned from paired sections of gray squirrel tail fibers or similar materials, which give the fly a natural look underwater. A soft hen hackle, often dyed yellow or red, is wound around the collar to introduce movement and mimic the legs of aquatic insects.

What it mimics

The Invicta fly is intended to imitate a variety of aquatic prey, not one in particular. The fly's vibrant colors, lifelike wing, and soft hackle render it an effective and enticing pattern for targeting fish feeding on underwater organisms.

Where it's used

The Invicta fly is versatile, suitable for use in various water types, including rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. It is particularly adept at targeting trout and other fish species that feed on small insects.
