Big fish eat small fish. And, this classic-styled streamer pattern does a good job of imitating our native brook trout which are vulnerable to the larger brown trout that often share the same water.

You can fish this brook trout with a shorter sink-tip (10-12′) or even a floating line. If using the latter, proper mending in the retrieve will allow you to dance and suspend the fly in likely fish-holding water and above structure.

  1. Looks like a very effective fly, we have tons of little brook trout that the rainbows and larger brookies feed on, I’ll have to try this out.

    Looks very much like the Fatal Attraction pattern

    I don’t see a material listed for the tail, I’m guessing barred mariabu? I definitely will tie a buch up! Thanks
