For decades the goal of most all fly tiers has been to match the hatch....create flies that look close enough to real that they fool those old hardened trout. Even bass fly anglers try hard to create and offer baits that simply look real, natural. I fish Lake Superior a lot during the summer months. The days of being out there in a boat are gone now but the breakwater in Two Harbors, Minnesota juts out into the lake about 1/4 mile if not a bit more and offers water anywhere from 35 to 80 feet deep, plenty for salmon and lake trout and herring. While all three of these species have a thing for lures that are gold with some bright orange on them and will willingly hit most anything tossed out there with that color combination, the herring presents a bit of a glitch.
