Freshwater fishing methods
Epoxy trout fly
||The Epoxy trout fly is designed for depth fishing.
It is very heavily weighted and designed to get any line (and other
attached flies) down to the bottom in the shortest time even in strong
currents. Sometimes it is tied with variants such as the "hot
pink butt" on this one but often the sole purpose is as a sinker
that takes other more natural patterns down to the bottom.

||While it will take the occassional fish, the epoxy
fly is usually fished with another more natural fly tied below it.
