Was reading up on Maui bonefish and one of the guides recommended lighter brown flies for the summer.
Here is what I came up with...
Size 6 1x strong hook
Copper crystal flash
Red lead eyes (might tie some with brass bead chain eyes)
Macrame twine body wound around the hook shank and left unfinished on each end.
Every so often we run across a fly that fills several roles in one. Such is the case with this fly. This is a really great pattern which was designed as a dry fly but is also fished wet as a streamer pattern. There is no reason that this multi-purpose fly should not work anywhere in the country. This fly was created by the late Bill Nault, from Marquette, Michigan back in the mid to late 1960s. He modified this pattern from the original Betty McNall which was originally created in Denver, Colorado. This fly is also called the Coachman Betty.
This fly was originally tied by the late Walt Dette, a Catskill tier from Roscoe, New York. It was tied for a friend of his by the name of Art Lee to be originally used on the Delaware River. To this day, the fly is very popular in New York State.
