Freshwater fishing methods
Halfback trout fly
||The Halfback trout fly is one of the most popluar
flies in new Zealand. It is very similar to the Hare and Copper and
is often tied in a very rough pattern. It is a good all round pattern
that can be used anywhere around the country and on all sorts or waters.
It can be weighted or left unweighted. Try to match the size of the
fly to the larcal forms in the water you are fishing.

bottom of the river bed. It can be useful in stillwaters also where
it is unk and when a cruisingtrout is passing is given a twitch to
