This fly was a new pattern for this season, and so far I haven’t caught anything worth mentioning but I almost did this spring. As me and my son was pike fishing in April this huge sea trout comes swimming in over shallow waters. I sight fished on him for ten minutes and this fly was the only one that he turned after and it looked as he was going to strike it but then kinda changes his mind and swam the other way. It was fantastic to see it but frustrating not getting him to strike!
I shot this photo while experimenting with a home made light box this past spring. I love those “Fish skulls”!
