The way I got the pattern, I was fishing a stream by a pig farm and these
bugs were all over. When they hit the water the fish were right on them. So I
grabbed a couple and brought them home to copy.
I fish them in the late afternoon till dark .They seem to die off during this
time. They are fished dry and need to be coated. ~ DU
