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 the Lothar original 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. This one is an updated model with 2010 material.
The name referes to the latin name for eelpout, Lota Lota, which it's mean to immitate.
