About the Elwyn's Shuttlecock Trout Fly

The Elwyn's Shuttlecock is a good fly when trout are on or near the surface feeding on hatching buzzers. Watch out for the take on the drop.

Use a Floating Line and as long a, de-greased leader as you can comfortably fish.

Expert Tip:

The nice thing about catch and release is that one can always renew acquaintances with one's old opponents.
