Re: a little bug for small streams
Jason, it's an incredibly floating fly. It dances on the water, even in fast, narrow troughs and plunge pools like you see on small streams. Never put a BH on it, for me its strictly a fun fully floating fly. Last time I fished it (sadly, last summer as I'm out of commission this summer) on a lovely little stream outside of Cambridge, NY, I took brookies, browns and rainbows. They loved it. I've been tying this one for years; I guess it has its roots in the Letort Cricket.
Thanks for the nice comments, guys.
