Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable fly This is one of those classic flies that you can't go wrong with, especially if travelling to the NE to do some trout fishing. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Cahill Wow, this is the type of information I been looking for and it nice to see the orgional pattern of the fly. Its hard on the Internet to find this type of data. Also this fly history is amazing. It is considered to be useable nation wide here in America. I've looked for this orgional information for quite some time and I have never found this old pattern until now. Another reason for wanting this fly is it is suppose to compete with the Adams on useage. You also need to know that there are modern versions of this fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Fly I use this fly all throughout the Fall. Put it up stream and just let it float down. Let it stop at the end and hold on! I use a size 16 or smaller. This fly can't be beat in the Fall up here in CT.
