Brown Trout’s Near Fatal Attraction

 

Near Fatal Attraction

Near Fatal Attraction

This pattern was originally tied for saltwater species. I have not altered the pattern’s makeup but you can readily see the possibilites with green or reddish tones in the feathers. I have only used this at Oregon’s East Lake searching deep for Browns. I had a modicum of success but with smaller 14-18″ browns. I am eager to strip this through the shallows in September, October and June. I have used Mallard, Teal or Gadwall with the hackles. Keep the flashabou or krystal flash the same general color as the tail feathers. It would be interesting to replance the squirrel wing with Pheasant feathers laid in full length and perhaps experiment with different colored eyes. As always, flytying lends itself to experimentation. As this pattern sets, it is a lively, attractive pattern. It casts well with 4-6 wt. rods. It is durable, but the tinsel does suffer a bit from teeth. Darn!
