#276 Maligne Laker - Alan Grombacher #276 Maligne Laker - Alan Grombacher


Tied by: Alan Grombacher
Originated by: Alan Grombacher

Hook: #2 Partridge CS15
Thread: White Pearsalls Gossamar silk thread
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Ribbing: Silver oval tinsel
Belly: Red bucktail
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Underwing: Peacock herl
Wing: 2 olive hackles flanked by grizzly dyed red
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black Pearsalls Gossamar silk thread

Notes: The red and olive hackles in the wing make for a quite interesting combination. This is one of Alan's creations destined to hook the large brookies out of Jasper's Maligne Lake. The lake has a healthy population of brook and rainbow trout, and the distinction of being the lake from which Alberta's largest recorded rainbow trout (over 20 lbs) was caught. Brookies in the lake can also grow large, into the 10 lb and bigger range.

The Maligne laker has been one of my most successful patterns. Brookies simply love to slam this fly. Rainbows of the mountain lakes also like it. It is one of two similar patterns that use a similar color combination. This pattern fishes well throughout Westerns Canada. ~ Al Grombacher

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
