Jay’s Bulltrout Jig Streamer (Sandy Chub)
In this video, Jay ties us a bull trout Jig Sandy Chub. This is a terrific Bulltrout pattern that will work for a variety of freshwater and Estuary species. You can fish this on the swing or dead drift it under an indicator. Happy tying!
Years ago, my cat Mags, got under my feet and I ended up stepping on the hair of his tail. A big chunk of hair was left behind, pretty much even tipped, and so I figured I would put it to good use. I decided to tie the cat hair into a Clouser pattern and this was the result. Fox is a good substitute for the cat hair, besides, it might be too noticeable to have the cat walking around with a bald tail.
I put the fly in my fly box and a couple months later found myself fishing in a northern Alberta lake. I decided to try the fly and trolled it behind our boat. I was soon tangled up with one of my largest pike on the fly.
