Biologist Selected. Fish Approved.
Give the gift of success on the fly to your family and fishing buddies with an Ascent Fly Fishing Gift Certificate.
Like shrimp cocktail from outer space, the PS Martian Mysis is an Ascent Fly Fishing original brought to you by Aquatic Biologist Peter Stitcher. Stocked to a number of lakes and reservoirs across the Western US, Mysis Shrimp are a key food species supporting some of the most productive lake and tailwater trout fisheries in the states. These opaque, semi-translucent, protein-rich shrimp are an elusive prey in the reservoirs in which they grow, and it is in the tailwaters below the reservoirs that their importance really comes to light. Flushed into the tailwater as water is released from the dam, the mysis shrimp helplessly drift downstream into the waiting jaws of hungry trout. This pattern is equally effective both day and night.
When fishing at night this pattern will need to be charged with a headlamp or UV light.
Family: Scud, Shrimp & Sowbugs
Species: Mysis Shrimp
Life Stage: Juvenile to Adult

In certain rivers, where trout have the mysis shrimp on their menu, this pattern is absolutely necessary!!
I've hooked some magnificent trout on this one, and I am proud to always carry it in my fly box as a memento when I'm not in Colorado.
