Georges Odier waxed poetic about this pattern in his 1984 book Swimming Flies. Odier truly systemized the concept of high-stick nymphing for trout, a tactic that works equally well in any moving water situation for all insectivorous fishes.



This is a fine searching dry fly. It floats high and imitates anything from a beetle to a midge. I like it as an alternative to the Griffith's Gnat. But this fly really comes into its own when you use a couple splitshot above it and fish it like a nymph. It's a killer caddis fly imitation and works anytime fish are keyed into caddis pupae, which on the Mad is anytime you are in the water! Try it in a size 16 or 18. Definitely a dry fly to have in your kit - and it's easy to tie! Full step-by-step dirctions and downloadable video are posted at http://www.flyfishohio.com
