About the Apache White Trout Fly
The Apache White is probably the most exciting and devastatingly successful fishing pattern to hit lakes, ponds and reservoirs.
The pulsing movement of the white mink 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 then pause, 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
- We stock Apaches with either tungsten or brass beads which affects the sink rate; tungsten helps the pattern sink, whereas brass does not add much weight to the pattern.
- You can either use a tungsten on a floating line, or brass on a sinking line. (Our Tungsten variety is more expensive than our brass; but you can achieve similar results by using a weighted line)
