Does that fly acually imitate anything or is it just an attractor.
If you got it dry somewhere id love to see the fly
I got an XP 590 but was using a tcr 590 a few weeks ago.. and it blew me away. Even tho the XP is one of the finest #5 ive seen.. it was like going from a KIA to a Ferrari lol.

The three lowe ones (Gammaridae) will be very interesting to try as well =)
Other than that i hope that pinkpowaaa will fool the trout
