This fly is and has been my go to for many years. It’s consistently produces oversized trout for me regardless of season. It’s buggy, it gets down deep quickly to where the “pigs” hang out. Great pattern from a great fly tier. .
This fly is and has been for years my go to fly for large browns. All year. But more so early season when hellgrammites are in some of our waters. I recently bought 10 from the fly shop. What I noticed is the “rag” is a different material. It’s very close but not the same so I’m a bit disappointed.
This fly is an amazing pattern that when swung or drifted low trough runs can produce some large trout
I used this pattern last year on the Big Hole in mid May and got a lot of action from bigger browns and Rainbows and even got a real nice Brookie that were targeting large stone nymphs crawling around on the bottom of that river.
