I've done well with that, this is why I was pointing you toward a Nine Three. They are different in color but I think the feather wings are the best fish catchers especially on trout & char.

I think big streams do well for most species of fish-trout, salmon, char, bass, pike, walleyes-most predators.

I plan on targeting char next year when I head back to Sweden with a fly rod. This fly will certainly be in the box!

I've already bookmarked a load of Ard's patterns to try and tie, I'll check to make sure the nine-three is on there!
