Swedish version


Squirell & Claret Sea Trout Hairwing variant
By Erling Olsen

This fly is equally effective on river and still water. It is a subtly coloured fly at its best in overcast conditions where the rich claret of the body is set off beautifully by the golden rib. The light that are reflected by the Lureflash-fibres is also exiting. A useful tip is to use a single hook when the river is small.
