The Orscherl is a fly whose creation is attributed to Hans Gebetsroither, the great Austrian fly-casting master.
It is a fly for grayling, but it also has proven efficacy for trout fishing.
This is a fly that works on the surface and seems to mimic a certain species of beetle.
From my point of view and the way it’s designed, I think it can also mimic various kinds of aquatic insects when they reach the surface of the water, so we could say it’s a generic imitation.
It all depends on how you consider making it work and, consequently, how you present it to the fish that you have “in your sights”.
I sat on my fly tying bench and I wanted to share the result.
Here I show you a couple of photos and although here in Argentina we have no grayling, I will offer them (as soon as possible) to our local trout.
Thanks to Hans for giving us his valuable inspiration!
