When I was out in the forest the other day, this fly was the one that the trout really couldn’t get enough of. It is easy to tie, can be varied in size and colors to match whatever you have hatching around you and it catches fish! The pattern is really simple with only dubbing, CDC and deer hair (or the equivalent). The CDC makes this fly come to life on the surface, and it really floats well…..
