About the Elwyn's Lure Trout Fly

In his younger days Elwyn excelled in the physical challenge of rugby but and succumbed to the gentler allure of Fly Fishing later in life.

The fluorescent green is very attractive to trout and the only other colour the fish seem to be interested in is orange. The two colours form a killing pattern which this lure has proved to be.

It works well in coloured water.
