The fly has worked extremely well and has landed more fish for me than any other single fly I have used.

The fly is tied on a light, dry fly hook. It is fished primarily across and down as with most soft hackle patterns. The best method of fishing it is to stand in the center of the stream and cast near either bank and then let the current swing the fly across the water and then directly downstream. This way, you quickly cover the entire stream as you slowly work your way downstream. I tie it on a light wire hook for this reason: I am usually fishing this fly when there are no rising fish. If, however, I see a rise, I do a few quick false casts to dry the fly off and gently land it above the rise. The fly will actually float for a little while and is often taken that way by the rising fish.
