tied by
Fly Type: Streamers,

Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Lothar Fish-Skull
Hook: Gamakatsu F-314 or other stinger hook, size 1-8
Tag: Round tinsel, gold
Tail/wing: Rabbit zonker strip
Body: SLF Dubbing, 2/5 brown, 2/5 white,

Tying Instructions: Tie it like the original, but use the Fish-Skull instead of the dubbing head. You have to tie in the rabbit strip closer to the hook eye to make it look good.
Presentation Tips: I first tied this pattern for my first trip to Kola peninsula. The success was immediate. Since then I have caught trout, char and grayling on the Lothar in many waters, from russian Kola and norwegian Finnmarksvidda in the north to Patagonia in the south.
The name referes to the latin name for eelpout, Lota Lota, which it's mean to immitate.
