Great Fly !

I have been buying this fly for years for my blue line backcountry brookie trips ! Floats all day and the wild brookies can't resist it ! It is imperative in pocket water that the fly floats from the second it hits the water and this fly does it perfectly ! Great fly and great service from the Fly Shop ! Tight lines to all, Kent in NH
