Surffilauta is one of our personal TOP5 flies for both trout and salmon. The Finnish ‘surf board’ is an insanely effective, but above all, fun fly to fish. It’s classic use-case is in imitating a stunned baitfish drifting on the surface after a trout attack (=cast upstream and dead-drift like a dry fly). As a bonus, the smallest sizes are killer atlantic salmon flies in Northern Norway (surely also elsewhere)! It doesn’t get much better than watching your streamer glide with the current and suddenly witnessing the surface blow up. Available in Daiichi 2220 and TMC 8089 hooks (choose your preference in the drop downs!). Note: TMC 8089 has an exceptionally wide gape, and for example the #10 size is comparable to many #6 streamer hooks.
