Fishing notes I created this fly to fish still waters. I have caught big trout with it. It can be used an an emerger with a floating line, but also as a buzzer or a wet with an intermediate or sinking line; slowly "knitting" the line both in moving and still waters.

I've seen this fly take fish!

Of course, it may only work in France (chuckle) :rolleyes:

Nice tie, J-P!

This is an excellent pattern. I've used it on Colorado and Wyoming lakes with great success!
