tied by Sippy
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Size 10 hook
Dark olive marabou
Brown saddle hackle
Tying Instructions: After putting on a bead and tying in your tail, wrap the antron to form your body. Build it up as you go so it's fat behind the bead. Give it 3 to 4 wraps behind the bead with the saddle hackle. I use extra wraps to finish it off since the black segment seems to make a better producing fly.
Presentation Tips: In arkansas, it worked great with a sink tip in deep water. If nothing hits on the drift through, use short, quick strips to retrieve and something usually would hit it.
In Michigan, it works great in riffles. If nothing has taken it by the end of the drift, once again, strip it.
