Developed by Fly Fishing Team USA's very own Lance Egan, this fly really works. Fish it as a dropper off of a dry fly or in tandem another small nymph on a French leader set-up. Tungsten bead on the front add's plenty of weight and the slim profile of the fly allows it so sink quickly. Sold in Eaches!!

Great fly on the Chattahoochee river just below Buford dam in Georgia. I have had good luck with other droppers but his pattern seems to produce more consistent bites. This is now my go to starting point each trip on that river.

Outstanding nymph. Used it fishing for landlocked salmon in Maine. Dredged up a number of large fish. Fished in tandem with Surveyor. Caught fished with both. Only hooked up with larger fish--high quality problem.

Great fly for stocked rainbows. I fished a #16 in a hard-fished put-and-take river about six weeks after Fall stocking. The bait fishers had cleared out all but the wiliest Rainbows by then, but I was able to land the fattest Rainbow I'd seen all year, PLUS lose three others during the retrieve. My local TU members had told me about this pattern, but now I'm a believer.
