A much anticipated streamer from my repertoire. This is what I would deem the upper echelon in terms of size for trout. The pattern tied in the video comes in at 8 -9 inches in length. Top end for trout, but moderately sized for apex predators. This fly can be tied in a variety of colors, have fun with it. And throw this guy on an 8 weight and hang on.
Articulated Baitfish
The articulated version of my realistic baitfish. Pretty self explanatory. This one is tied in a shad or alewife color combo. Have fun with the color schemes and fish it hard
