Choosing Rainbow Trout Flies

Fly patterns for Rainbow Trout can be vibrant patterns to stimulate aggression in the fish. A fly for Rainbow Trout could be bright and vibrant like a Blob fly which can be really colourful or it can be a trout buzzer that matches the natural midge pupae coming to the surface to emerger. When we design a fly for Rainbow Trout we are working on the basis that the fish is so aggressive that it could hit the fishing fly either beacuse it is bright and vibrant or it matches naturals found in the Rainbow Trout's lake or river habitat.

Selecting Brown Trout Flies

Brown Trout are generally more selective in their choice of fishing flies. Brown trout flies often match the naturals like imitative small fish patterns or Pheasant Tail Nymphs which look like Baetis nymphs (early stage of River and Lake Olives). Alternatively we can use suggestive fly patterns. A Brown Trout fly that is suggestive could be a Gold Ribbed Hares Ear which does not match anything under the water but looks 'buggy', it looks like the typical grubs and nymphs found under the water
