Often times we find ourselves fishing in the late months of summer when the water is so warm large fish have sunk low into the water to find cooler pockets. In this video by RIO, they explain why and when you should tie on an attractor pattern to get those lazy trout out from the deeper water. Attractor patterns serve a variety of purposes, but in this video, Phil Rowley goes through how they entice juvenile and more sluggish trout to come up and feed in late summer months.
This series of RIO videos, which we have spotlighted before, is excellent for beginning anglers looking to get a better grasp on the techniques and reasoning for some of the odd habits of fly fishermen. As Phil Rowley goes through the purposes of attractor pattern fishing and how to properly set up a rod, pay close attention to the patterns he uses and the manner with which he fishes them. Oftentimes the presentation of the fly if just as important as the pattern when trying to attract that trophy trout.
