The goldhead Fritz trout Flies are one of the most basic yet effective lures, used constantly in the cooler months yet will get results all year round on still water lakes and reservoirs. The sparkle in the fritz and pearl flash in the tails work as an attractant to the trout. This simple lure is available in a range of colours.
This fly fishes well all year on floating and sinking lines. Excellent fritz trout fly for encouraging takes on the drop and if used with a sinking line you get loads of takes using the "hang" method at the very end of the retrieve.
It works well on all sizes of water throughout the country and is a superb fly on Esthwaite. Can be used as a damsel imitation.
Favourite retrieves are several slow to medium pulls followed by a pause of a few seconds and this stirs up resident fish. Slow figure-of-eight also works very well and of course it will get plenty of fish stripped back fast if trout are in a chasing mood.
