A lure that my grandfather already knew. Often unfairly neglected, but still very effective. It's one of the lures I started with as a kid, and despite dozens of modern pieces, Hauzer Fly always hold a firm place in my box. Among other things, he has countless trophy browntrouts and rainbows. Plain, simple and miraculously effective Hauzer Fly.
I remember this lure very well from my beginnings as a spinfisher, when I caught chub, perch and later aspius with it on the rivers. Back then, with the treble hook, I was just jumping down the current with Hauzer and bang, a chub as a leg. And another and another. I don't remember exactly how many there were back then and if they were really that big, but in my childrens eyes they were monstrous. I can see it like it was today. Over the next few seasons, I had countless beautiful moments with Hauzer. My friend and I even started pulling big white Hauzers quickly downstream and caught them with success under the Aspius weirs. And as the years went by, Hauzers gradually replaced wobblers and soft lures. About ten years ago, however, I started going for trout, and that's when I remembered that miraculous Fly and once again brushed off its, for me already forgotten, glory. I remember very well how I caught my first larger browntrout between the rocks with Hauzer. Maybe that's why Hauzer's Fly is still in my box.
I mostly use white, black and natural colors. I use them only in the late season on caught fish and above all in clear water. Browntrouts and rainbows literally love them. I fish with the Hauzer both with the current, when I imitate a fleeing fish with larger jumps, and also against the current, where I try to attract it as slowly as possible with occasional stops, during which the Hauzer sinks to the bottom. During the subsequent start-up, the engagement usually comes.
Despite the great popularity of "cheese", this "old school" keeps a place in my trout box.
