Fly of the Month - May, 2018
Mike's Trout Molester
Mike Swederska, Ozark Fly Fishers, Inc., has made this pattern popular. Although a hard core dry fly fisherman, when the going gets tough Mike gets tough and ties on his Molester. Great pattern to fish under an indicator, swing and strip or simple strip.
