Flashtail Baitfish – Niklaus Bauer

A few years ago, I discovered that orange flies were absolutely outstanding for sea trout in the fall, and the colder the water got, the better the orange flies got. In the fall of 2022, I started experimenting with fairly large flashtail flies with a fluorescent orange front body and here you have the result, my absolute favorite baitfish pattern for fall and winter trout. Don’t be afraid to tie it up to 12-13cm in size.
