Caramel Tiger Dog Nobbler

The Dog Nobbler is among the most effective trout flies in the world, and any fish that eat leeches, worms, insect larvae and slender baitfish will try to kill this fly. Trevor Housby, the creator of the Dog Nobbler, favoured a couple of tiger striped versions. One being white/brown and another being yellow/black.
I kind of like substituting the brown colour of the former version with burnt orange. When wet it is nearly brown, but has a glow and shimmer I find pleasing. Like caramel for the eyes.
Fished on a floating line with a long leader this is one of my go-to flies for early season trout fishing anywhere.

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.
