It was a great success as seen above. This fellow is about 20 inches. The other species liked it as well, especially the perch (one of which was big enough to bring home). I always bring perch home to eat. They compete with my target species (trout and bass) for food and can ruin a fishery as they reproduce much faster. Our trout don't reproduce and have to be stocked. OMNR told me that they really shouldn't stock lakes that have perch because the trout will starve. So all you fishermen out there have a duty to catch and eat perch. Get to it.
The fly in question is a Hamill's Killer, tied Canadian style. My friend had wound an even layer of non-lead weighted material.
