Cutthroat Thriller Fly Tied by Casey - Video
This is a pattern I started playing with last year specifically for targeting Cutthroat Trout in our rivers and sloughs. I have had enough success with it that I wanted to share it with you all. Don’t think this is only a Cutthroat fly though, I was able to catch some nice Coho on it this Fall as well as a couple of Bull Trout.
This is something that I tie in size 10-6 hook, but a size 8 is the most common that I fish. I typically fish this pattern with a full floating line with a 10’ Intermediate Sinking Airflo Poly Leader down to 4-6 feet of fluorocarbon and Seaguar Blue label in 6 or 8 pound breaking strength (Cutthroat are rarely leader-shy). A slow, steady 8-10 inch strip retrieve usually does the job for me. Try varying your retrieve until the fish let you know what they want on a given day. I hope this pattern brings you success!
