What's in the Box: May 2019

May is probably one of our favorite months of the year, Stripers are showing back up on the coastlines of the North East and hatches are going off in full force all over the country. Not to mention long weekends and the first days warm enough to do some wet wading, this is just the beginning of an amazing Summer 2019 fishing season! Find out what came in this month’s boxes below and if you haven’t joined The Postfly Tribe yet, click here to sign up.

Trout - East

Trout - West

This month is all about matching the hatches that are coming off all across the nation on trout streams. Whether you're tossing dries on the Upper Delaware or fishing Green Drakes in the Rockies, we've got you covered. Don't forget to try all the combinations of dries and nymphs in dry-dropper rigs so you fish the entire water column. Have a favorite pattern from a previous box?

Pretty much every bass in the country is finally awake and wreaking havoc in their warm summer waters. This month's kit comes with a few favorites and 2 new patterns for us that have been crushing fish for us. The Bass Bully has become a go-to during low visibility fishing days, and the gummy minnow looks great trailing behind one of the poppers from last month! Have a favorite pattern from a previous box?
