Fishing Flies: The Wonderful Wee Wet

Tongariro River Hydro Pool angler Harvey Clark slams the rainbows with a “wee wet,” which can best be described as any dry pattern tied with softer, shorter wings so that it can be fished wet. “I set up a light No 4 rod and tied on a large dry fly – an elk-hair caddis – mainly to use as a strikemarker and tied two wee wets on 5lb fluorocarbon 20cm apart 20cm behind the dry. The hits started within a few casts and they hardly stopped, 95 per cent on the wee wets. Only tiddlers took the caddis off the surface.” In the New Zealand Herald.
