    Magnet for Browns and bows! - 11/27/2014
    By: from Dallas, TX

    Was nymphing the Rio Grande in NM at John Dunn Bridge with no results. Tied on this bugger and caught several nice Browns and a few nice bows. Worked well in full sunshine and at dusk. Held up to repeated casts and hang ups on the rocks. Just re sharpened the hook and kept on throwing it. Highly recommend.

    Productive - keeps the net busy! - 11/11/2014
    By: from Dallas, TX

    Used this flashy streamer on the Rio Grande, Taos, NM near the John Dunn Bridge. Caught several bows and several browns to match. Tied nicely. Holds up well to hundreds of casts. I used it in both low and bright light conditions with great results. I'll fish the Lower Mountain Fork River, Broken Bow, OK in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to try it there.

    Every day here is a potential fishing day for me. I opened the package put in my box and headed for the lake. Outstanding quality compared to big box flies available.

    Great for Warmwater Fishing - 6/5/2011

    This fly is one of my favorites for small bass and panfish. The olive version is great where the fish are feeding on crayfish. I have yet to try it on trout, but I presume it will work great. I highly recomend this fly to anyone into warmwater fly fishing.

    The olive bead head bugger with the olive tail is one of the most successful streamers I have used on the big southern New England rivers. The flies from Orvis are consistently the best quality in materials and craftsmanship.
