Rainbow Taking Flies
The rainbow is a very free riser to the artificial fly, apparently less discriminating in this respect than either native or brown trout. Any of the well-known fly patterns will be successful. In general the tackle advised for brown trout is equally suitable for fly-fishing for rainbows. The rainbow always seeks the swift water, grows to a larger size than the native trout, the rate of growth being about the same as that of the brown trout, and reasonably strong and efficient tackle is always best for heavy fish in heavy water.
