This little beauty should need no introduction to you folks.
The minor variation is the SF body instead of floss as it produces a nice halo effect. The Hen hackle is for a bit more movement when working the fly in still water.Presentation Tips:
A top dropper or 'bob' fly to be worked in or just under the surface. Also useful deeper when Trout are feeding in a Daphnia bloom.
