Trumpty Dumpty

Orange can be a great colour especially in Autumn and the summer months if conditions are favourable but it can also be effective all year round depending on the weather conditions and water clarity. It’s very useful in murky rivers after a flood and also in coloured lakes but it can at times also be lethal in clear lakes. This fly has a generous amount of flash but it’s also not overbearing for those more selective wily pike who won’t touch something with too much flash and the flash in this blends with the other materials colours really well so that it makes the fly stand out without being too much. The way I have tied the flash into this fly also helps give the fly a lot more of a natural looking movement.

Author: The Fly Fishing Punk

I’m a Punk from Ireland who is as passionate about fly fishing as I am Punk music. I live in South Tipperary right beside the best of the trout fishing on the mighty River Suir where I spend the river season fishing for wild native brown trout . I also fly fish for coarse fish and during the river trout closed season I mainly concentrate on fly fishing for wild native pike as well as tying trout and pike flies .
