Default Re: Name this fly

We were fishing on the Russian River that day. I would have to say about 70% were jaw hooked. I think it is almost impossible not to fowl hook when they get into tight schools. I know I have done it inadvertently with pinks. I try to pull the line out of the water nice and slow, within a foot of my leader breaking the top of the water and here comes some pinks pushing up stream...foul hooked!

BTW, he picked up the fly at Fred Myers for $0.89 each, no name though.
