It always amazes me how the same flies work year after year. Here is a 13 inch, SW Wisconsin Brown Trout caught on a Sunken Beetle. This is one of those flies that can be fished several ways. You can just lob it upstream and let it bounce back to you, you can swing it, and in the case of this fish you can strip it in. On this particular day the trout liked the stripping method. See the recipe for this fly in on our Fly Tying page. I caught this fish this September while fishing with my friend Rick Fahrenkrug. Yes, I used my Pentax Optio W30 for the photo. Life is good!
