How to fish
Very effective when cast square across the stream and stripped back as fast as you can. It really irritates the fish and it usually attacks they fly by jumping up when it takes it. Also good when fished with dead drift or stipped slowly across the pool. When water tempature is low you can fish this salmon fly on a dead drift and dont start to strip it until it reach the narrow bank. Often salmons chase the fly and as soon as you move the fly it will attack it.
Tip. Don't use this fly as the first fly in the pool. Experts say that it can scare the fishes and they will not take other flies after it has been used. It can also move fishes that don't show any interest in other flies.
