This beautiful trout fell for a Higa’s SOS Nymph.

This beautiful central-Pennsylvania brown trout was caught by Amidea Daniel, using a Higa’s SOS nymph, while fishing a soft edge in high water. The size 14 SOS, with a bright-red holographic tinsel flashback, is one of her favorite patterns, when fishing high and off-color water. Trout seem to be able to find the pattern when visibility is reduced.
