Great pattern! I have not seen this particular one before. Are you fishing it as a chironomid? Never apologize for any pattern you post. I have been tying a lot of Davie Mcphail's patterns and adapting the colour to suit where I fish. I notice that folks out your wat fish a lot of reds, purples and oranges, whereas we do but mostly in our salmon/steelhead patterns. Keep on posting!

Hi Kerry,


Are you fishing it as a chironomid?


Your spot on , Our opinion is trout take it for a buzzer, but it will also double up as a small fry pattern. It can be fished on a floater through to a di 7/8.................. twitched, drawn or pulled back fast it does very well and a high favorite for comp. anglers over here.
