Taupo Tiger Trout (Tiger Ross) Streamer


Product Information

Taupo Tiger Trout (Tiger Ross)Fishing Lure 
the Taupo Tiger comes in many different body colours nowadays but to be a Taupo Tiger it must have a wing of dark centred badger hackles and a red head. 
 A red bodied version of the Taupo Tiger is also known as a Tiger Ross. 

The Taupo Tiger is one of the most popular trout flies sold in New Zealand. It was according to Keith Draper in New Zealand Trout Flies, the original creation of James Ross of Napier in the early 1930s. I was originally known as the Tiger Ross.
Fished close to the bottom the Taupo Tiger makes an excelent smelt imitation or a cockabully. It is for this purpose that this highly successful fly is used to fish the river mouths feeding in to Lake Taupo, and also the Rotorua Lakes.
The Taupo Tiger is also a popular harling and trolling lure used throughout New Zealand. Many Canterbury anglers also fish this lure for searun brown trout.
