How to Catch Trout with a Yarn Fly (Bonus: How to Tie a Yarn Fly)

We are out here on the lower Niagara River in the month of December, and today we’re looking for trout.

We’re going to be running a T-Turn bait rig, using the new x-small T-Turn, with a line down to a cattail sinker. You can use any sinker you’d like with this rig, though with the cattail, it’ll help keep you out of the snags as you sinker bounces along the rocky bottom.

For bait, we’re running a simple yarn fly which we tied up earlier today.

With these yarn flies, you’re going to want to work them just like you would a roe bag. Drop it right down to the bottom, and while drifting along just bounce it around. For colours, I like to use either hot pink, or orange.

To tie your own yarn fly, take your strand of the yarn and cut it to be about twice the size of the hook. To tie the yarn fly to your hook, take the knot that’s on your hook and slide it down the shaft a little, then poke your line through the eye to create a loop. Simply, put the yarn into the loop and snug back up onto the line. Then you have one yarn fly ready for action!
