Proppen, Without doubt my most productive sea trout fly. over a thousand sea trout can’t be wrong!!
This is my variant of one of the best salmon flies in recent years. It is, without doubt my most productive fly for salt water sea trout fishing. There is something about this pattern that sea trout just can’t resist.
On many occasions when there are sea trout feeding or on the move, and they just follow the fly and won’t take, this small fly works most of the time. Fished on a long fine leader and floating line just under the surface with a very slow figure of eight retrieve, the takes are savage and powerful, driving the tiny hook home immediately. Many fishermen are skeptical to fishing such small patterns, but if you give this one a try, I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

Så proppen i flueboksen til en jeg møtte ute forrige uke (Atle). Han sa han hadde fått de av deg… Glad du la ut beskrivelse, for disse ser giftige ut!
Da er det rett hjem til bindestikka etter jobb, i morgen skal det fiskes med proppen 🙂
Det stemmer Alexander, Jeg sendt 12 stk mere til Atle idag. Skittfiske!
What if you just used red thread? Would that look as good/work as well?
Hi Gary, Yeah I dont see why not. If you use red thread, also tie in length of black or dark coloured copper wire to use as the rib.
