Easy to tie, durable fly that just works. Size 14-16 is a good all around size to try, and makes a good nymph in a hopper dropper rig. Larger ones work great for a point fly in a Czech nymph rig, as well as a weight fly under an indicator. Try in a variety of different colors and sizes!
Despite the cigarette filter look, this fly works amazing when there’s craneflies around. Trout love these big bugs, and they’ll go out of their way to eat them typically. Works great both dead drifted and skittered!
Great attractor nymph that works great by itself in larger sizes when the water is higher, as well as a solid weight nymph. You can tie this on a standard nymph hook like the video, or try it on a jig hook as well!
