3 Go-Betweens tied on size 10 hooks. These hooks are extremely strong and sharp and are capable of holding the biggest Uk Trout.
This pattern, it is a great fly fished solo. Often you will get best results on a sink tip or floating line with a 12-18ft fluorocarbon leader. I will often cast to my maximum range with this fly and the retrieve I would use is a slow figure eight.
This fly is great fished in the summer when the waters are warmer and the trout are less likely to be chasing big bulky lures. The nymph-like body and marabou tail give it both a realistic look combined with the mobility that marabou brings to a fly. All in all its a great pattern for summer trout.
