One of the early British still water patterns created by Ken Sinfoil for catching ‘fry bashing’ trout. Fry bashing is the equivalent of a hatch but with newly hatched coarse fish fry. In August these large shoals of fry gather in the shallows and are duly followed and attacked by cruising trout that smash into the shoal, killing or injuring fry that they will return to pick up.
