Haven't caught a damn thing with this fly, but still keep a few in my box just waiting for that first time!

Neat looking fly! Bring it on down to south Florida and some slab bluegills would slurp that up.

Looks effective, I would think it would work well in a small trout stream.

"Willy's Pip" was designed as a midge pupa pattern. As it states on the link below, it is related to the Palomino Midge - one of the best midge patterns I have ever fished in the Eastern Sierra and on the Madison River:
