A skinny profile and semi-translucent “micro tubing” body make the Trout Snatcher a great attractor pattern for trout streams just about anywhere. A split tail inspired by the legendary fish-catching powers of the Copper John and bold micro tubing legs add plenty of buginess and triggers. Drop a smaller nymph 16-24“ off the bend for a deadly combo. One of our top producers for wild trout in the Driftless Area of Minnesota and a favorite fly for shallow riffles and runs.
