Fishing Strategy:

Minnows and baitfish provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one.  In most cases, we strip a Meat Whistle with a traditional down and across delivery.  We have found that a slower, shorter 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 Meat Whistle is a must-have and deserves a spot in any angler’s fly box.  This fly is equally effective on rivers and stillwater.
