At some point in the day a school of Sardines will be close to your boat! They are fish that move a lot and end up becoming easy food of pirarucus when they cross their path! It’s the ideal time to put this Streamer in the water and have good results.
When Allan created this pattern, he had to consider the unique behavior of this fish. A species that inhabits the bottom of lakes and lagoons for most of their lives. They also have peculiar feeding habits, being sort of lazy yet opportunistic and attacking their prey at the right time. In order to attract a fish like this, we had to be creative and design a fly that first had a bulky body and a long tail to create the maximum vibration in the water. Some added weight gets the fly to the desired depth quickly and the pulsating effect allows it to move well even with very slow retrieves. This is a game of patience and the need to keep the fly in the water is crucial.
