The Godfather’s Pumpkin Head Fly Recipe
The Pumpkin head has become a staple in many anglers fly box over the last few years, here we have a variation of this extremely effective pattern that is worth adding to your arsenal.
This version of the fly has caught me a multitude of species; from Rainbows to Cutthroat, Brookies, Coho and even White Fish have fallen victim to this fly.
It is equally as effective on the rivers as it is on lakes stripped or trolled it will fool fish! I fish this on a full sinking line on the lakes, I typically will start with an intermediate line like a RIO Mainstream Intermediate and will change to a RIO Fathom 5 sinking line if I need a faster sinking line to go deeper.
When fishing the Godfather’s Pumpkin head on a river then I’ll use a line like the RIO Grand Elite floating line with a RIO PowerFlex tapered leader 9’ long is how I typically fish it but I will add a 10’ Airflo Trout Polyleader to help get that fly down in the water column if needed. Give this one a try and see how it work for you!
