Peanut flies are used trolled behind either a dodger or flasher. Trolling Peanut Flies for Coho Salmon is the main presentation used for the early spring fish on Lake Michigan. All salmon and trout will attack a peanut fly trolled behind a dodger or flasher. They can be used with a variety of trolling techniques: Downriggers, Planner Boards, or Dipsy Divers. Peanut Flies are tied directly onto treble hooks. Care must be used unhooking fish with peanut flies in their mouths. Do not grab the thread or fly material directly with your pliers as it can destroy the fly. Leader length for peanut flies is 12-18 inches from the back of your dodger or flasher to the peanut fly. Peanut flies are tied using an extra sharp size #4 VMC hooks.
