About the Snail Trout Fly
Great mid summer pattern to have in ones flybox for when the Trout are feeding on floating snails. Varying in from lentil up to large pea in size, .
Floating Line, a long leader and a little patients, watch the line for the take - usually a gentle draw.
Its a rare occurrence when the snails float to the surface, but truly superb but when it does happen. Times like this Trout are usually oblivious to all other food but snails.
