About the Appetiser Trout Fly

Bob Church created this fly nearly 40 years ago in the early 70’s and it is still a very popular lure and general attractor which has over the years proved to be a successful killing pattern.

It works well when fished close to the surface as an imitator of fry. A silver or brass head can also be added for those times when the fish are down deep.
