PET Blue NJ
Rabbit is good. At least the salmon and sea trout seem to think so.
Black and blue colors are great no matter where you are fishing for salmon or sea trout in rivers. The PET BLUE is just one of several colors of my PET's. They are great in all sizes but my favorite is the one tied on the Pro Micro Tube from Pro Flytyer.
The fly is perfectly balanced with a small Pro Disc or Pro Cone in front, then the hook as weight on the back of the fly. To give the fly some extra life, it has a Pro Soft Disc on the back part close to the hook.
The wing is a key ingredient on the smaller flies. Here it's a rabbit zonker and that just beats other furs by many lengths in my opinion.
It has the perfect shape, fill and movement and
can easily be cut/adjusted to suit the conditions.
The PET BLUE works fine as a traditional down stream fished streamer but upstream fishing with medium to fast stripping is very effective. I think the little red butt provokes the take when it is pulled fast in and out of the fish's sight. But this fly is also good fished slow on a sinking line for sea trout in the deep pools.
Bring the PET to the river, you wont loose!
