Terrestrial Fly Patterns are the Dry Flies that are tied to imitate all of the insects that are found on the ground along the edges of the streams, rivers and lakes that we fish.
These insects include all of the beetles, ants, grasshoppers, cicadas, crickets, spiders and any other bugs that you find in your area.
Most of the terrestrials that end up in the water are either shaken off of the nearby vegetation or are carried out over the water by the wind.
Take a look along the shoreline next time you go fishing and see if you can see any bugs. If you see anything moving, tie on an imitation of that bug and try your luck. The trout will love it, especially if it is windy.
