Red Setter trout fly

Description The Red Setter trout fly is a top fly for fishing rivers or lakes. Some say that it reprents a koura or freshwater crayfish while others maintain that it is really an egg pattern fly that pre-dates the globugs. Whatever is the truth it is one of New Zealands most effective patterns.

Use Is best when trout are running the rivers to spawn. A good general purpose lure and also works at night. It is also good on lakes where it needs to be fished deep with a slow retrieve.
