Fly-Rite Stomach Pump

$11.95

Using the Fly-Rite Stomach Pump can be a very effective tool for helping the fly fisher determine exactly what fish are feeding on.  Simply fill the ball of the pump with water, insert it gently down the fish’s mouth, squeeze the ball expelling the water into the stomach of the fish, and then release the ball to draw the stomach sample from the fish.  Held within the ball of the pump will be a detailed sample of the invertebrate families and life cycles that the fish are feeding on.  Now match the hatch!

The Stomach Pump can be an amazing and effective tool, but it needs to be used responsibly so as not to harm the fish.  General guidelines for when and how to use the stomach pump are:

  • Do not use on trout less than 12″
  • Do not use on trout in water temperatures over 67 degrees Fahrenheit
  • If you have played the fish for a long time, revive it and let it go without pumping
  • Wet the tube of the pump before inserting
  • Do not force the pump into the fish
  • Revive the fish slowly in the water after sampling, allowing it to swim away under its own strength
