About the Apache Olive Trout Fly
The Apache Olive is probably the most exciting and devastatingly successful pattern to hit lakes, ponds and reservoirs.
The pulsing movement of the body plus the stimulating flowing and eye catching movement of the marabou and flashabou tail make it a serious killer.
Two to three short jerks followed by a steady retrieve, repeat and be ready for savage takes.
This fishing fly needs to sink down a few feet in the water to give it's 'jelly fish' type movement on the pause.
It imitates a small fry, and as such fish will likely tug at it's tail as it passes. When this happens, the immediate response from the 'fry' is to get away, so begin a short but very frequent 'tap tap tap' retrieve through the water, creating the correct wake and fanning motion of the Mink within the Apache fly. The Trout should then swing back around for a 2nd or 3rd pass before taking the fishing fly with force!
Country of origin for this trout fly: England
This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Rivers & Streams, Still Water
Comments from other fly fishermen
The Apache range of lures all work extremely well. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow, both speeds with a pause and restart. Orange seems to work early in the season, as does black and green.The white and the black lures are consistent throughout. Their movement in the water is superb.I wouldn't be without them. - 5 out of 5 Stars by M. Warburton on 01/10/2010
