Five Different Eelpout


I have been spinning on some ideas about different kinds of eelpout flies. One of my favorite kind of fish to imitate. Especially since they very often hang out of the gills of the sea trout. They flounder around a lot. When a sea trout spot them they often hit them hard, the problem is as you understand to swallow them. They are often active early in the spring and grow quite big for still being on the diet of a sea trout. Sounds perfect for a fun day at the coast, right?! How do I imitate them? Here I list some different versions I use.

Pattegris - The Pink Piglet Fly

The fly I have chosen to give light to today is a real classic in the coastal fishing, both in Gotland and in other places. It has a great visibility in the water and a nice shrimp shape which works really good when the water is cold and during the whole spring. No fly-list for sea trout is complete without it. Here you can see what materials I use when I tie them. Read more
