|If you haven't heard of Pistol Petes® yet, it won't be long before you will be hearing a lot about them. Pistol Petes are fast becoming one of the hottest flies around. Originating in the Trinidad area of Southern Colorado where for years they have been the favorites of local anglers, their popularity is now spreading fast throughout North America.|
Whether you fish Pistol Petes with a spinning rod, fly rod, or by trolling them behind a boat, you will find Pistol Petes to be consistent fish-getters for all species of North American game fish. Developed specifically for trout as an attractor pattern, Pistol Petes are very effective for trout, salmon, steelhead, pike, bass, crappie, walleye, and other freshwater game fish. Pistol Petes are also being used effectively for many saltwater species. The secret of the Pistol Pete is the action created by the small propeller on the front of the fly. As the fly moves through the water, the propeller spins, creating an action and sound that excites fish into striking even when they are not in a feeding period.
