Presentation Tips: This fly was inventer by the famous New Mexico guide Talyor Streit. And it is rumored to catch only big trout.
This is my GOTO prospecting nymph. I fish this fly DEEP on a dead drift with a much smaller dropper. Most takes are strong and occur at the end of the drift when the fly is rising.
