Originating from the famous Golden Retriever fly, this version is essentially the same fly but tied on a jig hook with a heavy tungsten bead. Primarily tied in two different colors olive, and pearl, The Retriever is potentially the most versatile bugger variation of them all. It’s hot, flashy, and wiggles just the way the fish like it.
Tied by Logan Messina in Solon, Maine.
The Retriever, a must have for trout and salmon in Maine!
