Just a large generic nymph style fly. Can look like lots of tasty trout treats without being specific to any one mouthful.

Hook: 8 3xl, Tail: dark brown marabou, Abdomen: marabou fibers as dubbing, Rib: round pearl braid, Thorax: reddish brown synth dubbing with shredded red tinsel, Wing Case: pearl Mylar sheeting, Legs: dark brownish-black soft hackle

Love it, looks like the perfect bug to swing!

Thanks Deborah. It’s been effective as a rough stonefly imitation, a large damsel fly imitation, an Isonychia nymph, and even an Eastern Green Drake nymph. Those are specific instances where I knew the fish were feeding on the specified species. As you said, been great countless other times when swung as an attractor with no idea what the trout where feeding on. When they want something big, try this one.
