Chubby Chernobyl Dry Fly
Original Chubby Pink Body Chubby
The Chubby Chernobyl as was designed to be fished as an attractor pattern, which means it might appear to the trout as any number of different food organisms, such as a grass hopper, a stonefly, a cricket, a large beetle, bee, or your neighbor's favorite kitten. To me it looks like a tiny skate board with legs. It does appear that trout on the Deschutes think that it looks very much like a golden stonefly, so much so that the Chubby has replaced the Norm Wood Special as the go-to "searching-fly" with many anglers. There are several reasons for this fly's popularity. It floats low, like a real stonefly, and this makes it very hard to tell from the real live critter. It floats forever, with or without dressing. It is extremely easy to see in all light conditions therefore it is easy to control all aspects of your presentation. The origin of this pattern is claimed by several tiers.

Pink Body Chubby
This fly is about the same size as many early summer stoneflies and hoppers, none of which are pink. The Pink chubby is on of the best all around dry flies for the summer of 2015. It is unsinkable and is very durable. We like to dress the wing on ours so it floats even better. Redsides love them, cutthroats love them and so do small mouth bass. The Pink body Chubby is very easy to cast and easy to see.
