Pink Weenie Fly for Brook Trout

Pink Weenie
Pink Weenie. How can you resist?

Yeah… so that name might make you reconsider ever mentioning or using it, but according to a recent post about winter fishing for brook trout in Shenandoah National Park on the Ultralight Fly Fishing Forum, it seems to work. This guy says he caught 135 fish in a day with it, and his photos show those are good sized brookies.

See the fly recipe for the pink weenie and try it. Sounds like it might be a good early season fly for higher water.
