    Umpqua Barr's Meat Whistle is a popular streamer fly pattern for Smallmouth Bass and Trout. This fly is designed to ride hook point up to help avoid bottom snagging. The Meat Whistle features squirrel tail and marabou construction with rubber legs and flash for added attraction. The conehead cuts quickly through the water to get the fly down deep - fast.

    The first time I used one of these things was on a tributary to the Raritan in NJ. The fly hit the water and began to sink, before it could get six inches below the film a 5lb rainbow crushed it. Who knew NJ had trout? Impressed, the first fly I try on the Lewis River in WA a month or so later is a Olive Meat Whistle, first cast a 10 lb rainbow snaps off the 4x tippet before I can bow to him. Moral of the stories - meat whistles work & it's not a bad idea to have stouter tippet on hand despite whatever the pencil necks in the fly shop recommend.
