The Black & Grizzly Snatcher is a proven lake pattern which has been a consistent producing fly when trout are feeding near the surface of the water. Kristen ties this pattern on a curved shank barbless hook, but any curved shank hook, like the Mustad Signature C49S or TMC 2457, should work well. The pattern was designed to mite large emerging chironomids from the Scottish lochs, but the pattern will work great in North American slitters just as effectively. Cast the fly using a dry line and use a slow retrieve as you would with any chironomid. You can visit flies-stepbystep.com to see the complete sequence of tying steps.
