Default Re: RS2 Sizing/ how to fish

The RS 2 is a pattern that has been around for over 30 years, There are many variations. Here is some information about the pattern and its' creator - Rim Chung:

One Fly Fisherman

This is the RS2 Home Page paying tribute to Rim Chung.

This is one I am playing with now and it may be tied on a light wire scud hook with a pearl or mercury glass bead and some 0.10 lead or lead sub. wraps under the thorax. I tie them in #14 - #22... fished deep or in the surface film and they ALL work...
