Red Setter

Possibly the most productive and successful New Zealand lure pattern created by Geoff Sanderson of Turangi in the 1950's reputedly from hair from his own dog originally.  This pattern is used throughout the world - particularly for spawning trout. It is a favourite for Steelhead in the Pacific Northwest and is used in Europe and Australia to good effect. An excellent "change of light" fly. It can be used on rivers and lakes, day and night.
