Dustin is fast becoming a fly tying pro on youtube and here is one of his latest offerings, the Pass Lake Fly. The fly has a traditional feel to it, and it’s one I’ve seen being used in Manitoba a few years ago, hunting for trophy tiger trout in Pybus Lake. It has a coachman feel to it for sure, and when fishing the lakes, it did well being trolled behind a float tube, or cast.
This is popular fly when fishing for brookies on the rivers of Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. It can be swung through pools, along undercut banks, and under overhanging vegetation and other overhead cover. This fly also works well when casted downstream and erratically stripped back upstream. I hope you enjoy this pattern.
