Call this one whatever you want; it kills and destroys anywhere. This is a guides best friend. If it doesn't work go home or give a casting lesson. Brown chenille, life flex rubber and some Glo Brite for the hot head

Would appreciate some further info on fishing this pattern Cris. Stillwater or flowing (both?), do you add weight to it, what species are you targeting specifically (looks a lot like a warmwater pattern I use on occasion)? Thanks for anything you can add.

Sure Bill. It's is a pattern I learned in Montana on the Big Hole. There it is fished weightless usually under a stimulator as a dropper in shallow riffles. Here in western North Carolina where nymphing works well we add some weight to it. I use it as a weighted dropper or an anchor fly when euro nymphing. Usually tied on size 6 or 8 straight or curved hooks. Good all year except the really cold times. Usually dead drifted but will often let it swing and hang or even strip it in.

Cris, thanks for the information. Have you tried it in other colors? Going to have a go on some local smallmouth waters.

Sure olive with variate olive/black chenille and all sorts of legs. I don't see why smallies wouldn't eat it. Let me know. Where are your local waters?

Bill. I'm having trouble with the app. It is only loading two flies to view. Any info on this?
