The flesh fly is a staple in any Alaskan trout fly box. Throughout the majority of the summer, our trout love to gorge themselves on chunks of salmon flesh – Big flesh, small flesh, fresh flesh, dead flesh.. You name it, there’s a time and place for each. That’s ‘matching the hatch’ in our neck of the woods.
During the latter part of our season however, our trout tend to have an affinity for the ‘deader’ variety because, well, we think the photo above is all the explanation you need.
