Presentation Tips: Fish this pattern under a sink tip or on a floating line. Dead drift, swing, or strip it through the runs and drop-offs for explosive takes. It has been particularly good in the fall and spring in the Great Lakes and Southeast regions. Great for trout, steelhead, salmon, and even smallmouth.
