Designed by Hannu Pakarinen it has been a favorite for many years when targeting big brown trout in our streams. The idea behind this flashabou streamer is to imitate a wounded baitfish struggling in the surface. Usually most effective when casted upstream and retrieved as fast as one can to make a fast and staggered action but this is a fly that you can use in many ways.
As with all flies that I use they evolve through time and this is the latest installment I’ve been using. It has given some nice trout again this year and I’m sure it continues to do so. It differs quite a lot from the original but is close enough to be called by that name.
These flies are tied to order so estimate a 2-4 weeks tying time depending on our order queue.
