Trout, bass, pike and any other predatory freshwater fish will eat other fish. Small trout are on the meal list for common foods. Even trout will eat trout fry. This rainbow trout streamer will work great for many freshwater species. It moves nicely in the water, and has a bit of a jigging action.
These fish skull baitfish heads are awesome! They make building heads easier, and it hides any problems or issues that you have with your flies head and dubbing. It also pushes everything rearward and automatically creates a nice baitfish profile.
I caught a few smallmouth bass on this recently at my local lake. The fly swims really nicely, and the smallmouth were eating it up left and right. I also have caught a good sized brown on this fly recently as well.
