Snake  Tan Taipan
Ungainly and awkward in the fly-box these snakes come alive in the water when the long, sinuous rabbit strip pulses with life. Snake flies have now proven their value over several seasons and not only catch fish when other flies are failing but also tend to attract the bigger residents. 

This version incorporates a little flash (which won't tangle)  at the throat and unweighted eyes rather than the commonly used bead chain. This means that you can use a line of whatever sink rate you like to achieve the right depth and then fish the fly as fast or as slowly as you like.

A steady retrieve is often the most effecttive - either a figure of eight or the 'roly poly' (which need not be at breakneck speed). If you get taps which don't immediately stick, don't stop, keep on retrieving, possibly a little faster, until everything just locks up!

N.B. Although this pale tan may not appear as obvious a colour choice as black or white, its performance on the water has made it our own favourite.
