Rene Harrop's fly patterns were developed with an experienced eye for detail. This fly was proven on the Henry's Fork, one of the most demanding trout fisheries in the country. We use it on our local tailwater to imitate Blue Winged Olive mayflies, and the fish seem to really dig it. Tie in sizes 16-22.
