Presentation Tips: Georges Odier popularized this fly as a NYMPH in his landmark book "Swimming Flies" published in 1984. This is the real beginning of the high-stick nymphing technique and is worth the read.
Of course this is a dry fly, too. I like to fish this just about any time that a Griffith's Gnat would work - during midge hatches and during caddis hatches. You can also fish this fly damp.
