Description

Tim Heng, a long-time guide of the Roaring Fork valley created the Autumn Splendor streamer pattern over 20 years ago.  Since then, it has become one of the most-loved and most-fished streamers in the country.  The Autumn Splendor has an excellent sink-rate with a brass cone head and weighted body.  The warm profile breathes life, making it irresistible to aggressive fish in the spring and fall.

Fishing Strategy:

Minnows, baitfish, and leeches provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one.  In most cases, we strip an Autumn Splendor with a traditional down and across delivery.  Although, we have found that a quick, short retrieve provides the best results.  But, don’t be afraid to think outside the box from time to time and mix things up with a slower retrieve or a dead-drift presentation.  Whether you are swinging it, stripping it, or dead-drifting it in smaller sizes the Autumn Splendor is a must-have and deserves a spot in any angler’s fly box.
