About the Stewart's Olive Millionaire Taddy Trout Fly

This is yet another fly created by harry Stewart for the rivers of the Eastern Cape that has proved to be equally successful in the fast flowing rivers of New Zealand.

It is best used an hour before dark using a sinking, intermediate or floating line.

Expert Tip:

I discovered that as well as an excellent river fly, I had created a great still water fly.
It represents ANYTHING a fish likes!

Creator of this trout fly: Harry Stewart

Tier of this trout fly: Harry Stewart

Country of origin for this trout fly: South Africa

This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Rivers & Streams, Still Water

Pattern Dressings

  • Hook : Size 8.
  • Silk : Olive.
  • Body : Strip of Oilive Mink.
  • Tail : Olive Marabou with 3 or 4 lengths of different coloured strong, narrow, flat mylar/flashabou.

The weight problem was solved by using beads, copper, brass, silver or gold. I started off with a a strip of mink as a tail, plus mink wound around hook for body. I wanted to represent the tadpole. However it proved to be sluggish so as more mobility was needed I substituted the mink tail with long marabou adding strands of flashabou.

Comments from other fly fishermen

Dear Sir, I am from South Africa, now living in Dallas, Usa. I lived in East London and used to buy all my flies from Harry Stewart. I donated all my tackle to a good friend there as i thought i could get all my tackle in this big state, i was wrong the flies here are no where near what i am used to fishing with. I need my millionaire taddy olive like a druggie who needs his fix. Can you post to dallas and are postage fees very expensive. Chris Burke - Posted by on 12/02/2009

Yes it's not a problem, we post worldwide, and it's just £3.35 for postage to the US. - Posted by on 23/06/2009
