Invicta Flies - Water Sprite
Fly Patterns  ~  Helpful Information  ~  Waters (photos)  ~  Your Input ~  Home       


The prime appeal of this streamer pattern is the illusion of bulk, without added weight.  Large predators will rush quite a ways to engulf the meaty prey.  The combinatin of marabou wing and coarse hair body make it good for both stillwaters and large rivers.  Large trout, smallmouth, largemouth, and pike are amoung the big fish willing to take this fly on.
