fooled the biggest brown yet -
When the guide went to tie this one on, on an atypically dreary August day in WY, I was skeptical. We knew there were some really big fish in that stretch of the Green, but the day before we got only a few middling fish, all on nymphs. This bad boy fooled my biggest Brown ever, which measured 24", another that was almost 22" and a 19" cutthroat. The two of us probably touched (or our flies did, anyway) 60+ fish that day, almost all on this big goofy looking pattern. Bottom line, listen to a guy who has hit that stretch of water 100+ times, and don't get dogmatic about what is going to cause "what looked liked the tip of someone's boot" to poke up out of the water and give you a day to remember for the rest of your life.
Very nice construction. -

I admire the people that can put this fly together. Very carefully constructed and solid.
Me and some buddies used this fly and the cartoon hopper on a recent trip on the south branch au sable. I didnt expect to catch much since it was so early in the season, but i was wrong this fly caught me some brookies and browns. I lost track at 25 overall this is a great fly
