Appetizer

Uses

This fly closes remembles a large trout fingerling. Therefore it is useful in lakes or reservoirs that are stocked with fingerlings. Tandem patterns (two hooks) such as this one have better action and hooking abilities than flies that are tied on extra-long hooks.

How to Fish

Use the count-down-and-retrieve or slow retrieve presentation. Or try the wind drift tactic.
