I was first showed this fly by a fisherman at Bennet Spring in Missouri. He was simply fishing circles around everyone else. I worked up the nerve to ask him what he was using and he had the kindness to show me. I wish I could remember his name so I could give him the credit for it, but it escapes me now. When he opened his fly box to give me a few I noticed he had them tied in several different sizes and colors; green, tan, and red.*It is a very easy and effective fly.
