The Optic fly was released by ABU in 1967 as “a streamer of tremendous killing power” – and that label wasn’t all wrong. The Swedish tackle manufactor actually sold 80.000 Optic flies in the first year alone. The Streamtease is still a fabulous fly when trout feed on sticklebacks, minnows or young-of-year fry. This pattern has given me some beautiful lake-living wild brown trout.
