I never knew trout would go for the mice. Thought maybe it was a Bass thing. How do you present mice?

Put a rubber band around it's middle and slide a hook under it.Put mouse on a board and float it into the spot wher your fish lurkes. Pull the mouse off the board and hold on.
I was told this by an old timer who fished the Truckee River in California.Mice patterns in Alaska.

Saw a fishing show about casting mouse patterns for brook trout in Labrador. What if native PA brookies were that big....a guy can dream.

For both bass and trout I fish my mouse flies on the surface, down and across, with a slow, steady retrieve. Best under low light conditions.

Or fish it just as you would for bass. Remember you are imitating the mouse not the fish. Cast close to shore and work it out. Cast along a floating log or under an overhanging limb. Next to a rock. The fish could take it for a mouse, a small duckling, etc. Just size according to the quarry. Baby mice can be small.

Anyone ever see trout chase a frog?Walking a creek bank in S.Carolina I had a frog jump into the creek.The frog got attacked like the carp in Pymatuning chasing bread. I looked for a frog and came up empty. Maybe it would be worth a try mouse and frog patterns ?

The number one item on my bucket list for years was fishing Labrador for giant brookies. I got the opportunity to do that three years ago and caught several brookies on mouse patterns. Actually missed far more than I caught but it was very cool because of the visual takes and splashy refusals. More often than not, the trout would porpoise up and take the fly on it's way down! A few others would roll up alongside and inspect the mouse before a splashy refusal.

I've tried the same pattern & technique in Maine and other parts of Canada with less success, but it's still fun to throw them as a changeup once in a while.
