Winter Fly in Ginger
Winter Fly in Ginger
The Winter Fly was designed specifically to target the large laid up Snook that winter over in the deep backcountry ponds of the Everglades. It draws inspiration from Pete Squibb’s Squibbster and Peter Smith’s Fox Fur Tarpon fly to create just the right action and profile to entice those notoriously skittish winter giants. Choose Ginger for most scenarios; Black for low light or murky water. Comes with a single post mono weedguard.

How to Fish the Winter Fly

We developed the Winter Fly specifically for targeting laid up Snook in the backcountry ponds of the Everglades each winter. The Winter Fly is about 2.5″ long and colored to resemble the mosquitofish that Snook feed on over the winter. The tail and body are marabou for maximum movement. The head is spun and trimmed Coyote fur for the ultimate in soft landings. Feeding winter Snook is one of the most difficult tasks in fly fishing, but the Winter Fly and a painfully slow retrieve will get you halfway there.
