This is a pattern I came up with and is doing very well at catching trout for me. I am very fond of Peter Frailey's Web site and his "Hare & Herl Bugger" and his pattern inspired me to try this. It is not a difficult pattern to tie up. You will notice in the step-by-step tying instructions that I tie in "reverse" and you can tie it whichever way best suits you.
