The snake fly is without doubt the "heavy weight" of the trout fly world and this huge fly has the ability to pull fish out of nowhere and big fish too! We have found the Olive version is great in coloured water and works very well for big Brown Trout. Fish this on a variety of line from a floater right down to a fast sinking line. The best retrieves are just as varied as the line choice, where a super slow figure of eight can be just as effective as a fast strip. One thing we have found when using these flies is mixing the retrieve around can bring great results and without a doubt always, always, always hang this fly.
The Mini Snakes are easier to cast than their big cousins and when fish are shying from the larger 10cm version the smaller can be absolutely deadly.
All of our snake flies are connected with super strong nano braid which is strong enough to hold big fish yet supple enough to enhance the movement of the rabbit zonker strip. You will see what we mean when it is in the water!
