One of the best known is Scotty's McFly which is very effective for triggering big bass to strike. In this area, anglers should bring a minimum of 8-weight rods for the bass and 8- and 9-weight rods for the large northern pike. For the pike, big streamer flies in white, orange and black work well. For the bass smelt patterns, crayfish flies and poppers are very effective. promotes and facilitates fly fishing on the north shore of Lake Huron, and beyond.
