Like a spider web for sea trout!
Once again, simple is good!
This little fly is so easy to tie that you can easily fill a box with versions with different weights in no time. Thanks to the Pro Tubefly System, it is easy to add different Drop Weights to the Flexi Tube. If you need extra weight, you can add a Pro Cone Disc but I like this fly with the Pro Sonic Disc.
The colors are mostly black and this is the most safe color for both salmon and trout in my opinion. Black flash and the rubber legs make it alive as does the little squirrel strip.
The fly can be fish classic downstream but also upstream. I prefer to make small strips of around 5 cm to tease the fish and this I believe works well with this fly.
This fly simply works were many others fail!
