On a sinking line as any large trout streamer. Lots of lifelike movement and profile of a real baitfish with this pattern. It is hard to fish wrong, and I think the fish are stupid for not hitting it...that's why I call it THE EDUCATOR! I have put a few other of these types of flies in the database and more information can be found there.
