Pattegrisen the most popular and effective fly for seatrout fishing

Pattegrisen probably the most popular and famous Danish saltwater fly ever. It was developed by Claus Eriksen back in 2006 and it catches fish! Shrimp constitutes 60-70 % of the food of the Seatrout.

That is the reason why a shrimp fly is always worth a try. The Pattegrisen comes in many different colours, from light pinkish white over grey and sand to olive. My own favourite colour is a light pink and salmon Pink colors, but you should try it in fluorescent yellow and a fluorescent red trigger point also!

Yellow, red and white pattegrisen is a seatrout hunter!
