The Story

Ohio-based fly tier Mike Schmidt is always at the vise working on something new to land fish. Mike's Meal Ticket, tested on Great Lakes-area steelhead, trout, and pike, has proven itself time and again on the water. With sufficient flash, rubber legs, not to mention a stinger hook, this fly has all the earmarks of a successful big-fish streamer. In olive, tan.

Size 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly designed for great action. Anxious to try the fly for big Au Sable brown trout. Neatly tied and well proportioned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mike's Meal Ticket An absolutely beautiful fly usable for big trout waters and bass lakes/streams as well. Top quality materials and flawless/precise tying and finish. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Trout and Smallmouth Here in Ohio my main focus is Smallmouth and rainbow/steelhead. This streamer works exceptionally well for both fish. Just the past week I've caught half a dozen bows and a few Smallies already in just a few short trips to the river. It's well made and can handle the abuse very well.
