Mickey Finn Fly
The fly is somewhat generic and imitates a wide variety of baitfish. It most likely originated in the late 19th century by Eastern Canadian anglers, the Mickey Finn streamer once known as the Red and yellow bucktail was popularized by angler and author John Alden Knight in 1937.
The fly has some interesting history. The Creator of this colorful Streamer called it the ‘’Mickey Finn’’, is code for a spike cocktail given to an unknowing person. It is a fantastic fall Streamer pattern that works well especially for Trout and was considered as deadly as a super strong drink.
Usually available in hook sizes 4 | 6 | 8 | 10 | 12 | 14.
