This is a great lead fly, as well as a dropper under a bigger dry fly. We use this as a point fly in double nymph rigs and catch a ton of fish on it, particularly in higher flows.
This fly has been a moneymaker this year on Spearfish Creek! Nice and heavy, and it makes a fantastic bottom fly in a Czech style rig. Adjust the colors to match your local fish, but this Hare’s Ear version works very well!
