The Beadhead Tungsten Thin Mint is our favorite lake fly in Alaska! Hands down. Made up of olive, black, and brown marabou along with a peacock body. This fly catches fish. The added weight of the tungsten head makes it that much fishier.
Beadhead Tungsten Thin Mint – Peacock #8
Absolutely deadly on rainbows and cutthroat throughout SE and rainbows and grayling from Kenai to Fairbanks. Do not head out to the lake with out this!!!
