Feathered Lures

Feathered lures, also called streamer flies, for trout fly fishing. This category includes 46 different patterns: New Zealand Killer patterns, sea-run brown trout lures, Taupo and Rotorua patterns, Canterbury patterns and harling flies. These are generally referred to as feathered lures although some patterns use fur and other materials instead of feathers. Our full Feathered Lures menu is in the sidebar on the right of this page, or scroll down if on mobile.
