Sea Trout on waking flies!
We love to fish for Sea Trout in the dark during the summer months. When the streams and rivers come up after a period of rain you'll put all else aside and head to your favorite spots. That is if you want your share of the fish...
During several years we have been fishing "big, black and bulky flies" - and it works. With big flies we mean flies up 15 cm long. Most often we fish 8-10 cm long flies often with a lot of flash and tied with materials like marabou, rabbit strips, fox hair, soft cones - and some more flash just to be sure! An important touch is the cone head or muddler head which gives the all important "wake" when the fly swings through the most likely holding spots.
Don't be scared to go heavy on the flash. 25 strands of flash is average on our flies. Most people use to little flash in our opinion. Especially in the night you'll need a lot of flash. You might want to try Glow-In-Dark flash for some added bling-bling effects.
