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.
