OTF trout fly

Description The OTF trout fly is a suspended nymph pattern that works best when fishing still waters or on quiet river glides. It is particularly effective on warm summer and early autumn evenings.

Use It is usually fished so that it floats just below the surface film (the parachute hackle keeps it suspended just subsurface). Often trout will take these flies very gently and so either maintain contact with the fly and stike if a gentle pull is detected or watch for any movement in the raised hackles that float above the surface.
