This traditional wet fishing fly can be fished as a mini lure, with its extra flash of red hackle at the head it makes a great attractor which can work well when large dark midge are hatching or pin fry are on the trout`s menu. The Bloody Butcher has stood the test of time, and comes into its own on fresh run sea trout, wild browns and rainbows. It’s a real classic and should be in every fly box.
