Streamers Surface Bait Fish

Streamers Surface Bait Fish (Surffilauta)

Lots of tying lately and here is some for those big brown trouts, easy to tie and easy to make variants with different colors and sizes. When the trouts are hitting these big flies on the top of water the fishing is at the best! This will work same as the Poppers lures, just skate on the surface and hope some of the trouts are hungry.

Hook, Kamasan b800 #4, any streamer/large hook will do fine.

Tail, Silver ice wing, doubled to make base for foam

Back, 2/3mm foam, tied on back and front.

Body, 2/3 Silver ice wing, dubbing loop pick some of them out when you are done.

Front body, Black ice wing, dub and pick some of them.

You can add the eye if you want with superglue, will work without the eye too.
