|Tying Instructions and Pattern History:|
This is one of my favorite flies to fish in the Driftless area. I like to dead drift in the head of riffles in fast water, all the way through the pools.
There are several varieties of the fly I like to tie and use. I use different colors of copper wire -- copper, red, yellow, green, and brown.
Have fun tying and good luck fishing!
