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