This is a great fly --used as a giant Muddler Minnow -- that works wonders at Coopers' Minipi Lodges in Labrador where the brook trout average 5.25 lbs. (2.4 kilos)
Kelly Galloup has revised a form of fishing that works on big fish some of my biggest fish where caught with streamers, love his simplictic approach to fishing/tying, @Jan I don't like weighting my flies unless the water is super high instead prefer using a sink tip or ful sinking line with a loop knot for better action.
What a nice Muddler variation. I will definitely try this. Muddlers are my favorite smallmouth streamers. I fish them unweighted with a sinking tip line. Very effective!
Yes, it is a nice fly, and no, I add no weight and I fish it on a floating line. It will soak water and fish just in and below the surface. That's how I have always liked to fish my muddlers. But there are many ways as you can read in this old GFF article by David Allerton.
thank for writing about that great fly and also the book of Kelly, I'll order it.
do you ever weight this fly, or do you use a sinking line? I am asking about sea trout fishing in the Baltic sea.
Kelly has been based out of Montana for quite a while now and is now into hinged flies
