Cigar most popular fly pattern for night fishing

The Cigar – most popular sea trout pattern for night fishing

A Scandinavian surface pattern for sea trout. This is without doubt the most popular pattern for night fishing.

When stripped through the surface it has a very attractive profile against the night sky and causes enough disturbance to wake even the sleepiest fish.

Fished with short hard pulls with intermittent pauses, its when you start the retrieve again that things go bump in the dark!
