I designed this Nymph at the beginning of the 2016 season and gave quite a few away to clients and friends to try in their favorite streams and rivers. All came back with positive results and many informed me that trout who were shy of other patterns, pounced on this when presented correctly. I used this exclusively on some of my bigger water and had no need to change from this pattern all day. This has been designed to be a dropper off the back of a decent sized Dry Fly. I had fantastic success last season with this. It has just enough weight to get passed the water film layer but not too much weight to drown the Dry Fly. Forget your Flash backs, this is got to be one of the best droppers on the market.
