I never write reviews but this is one of the few flys that truly deserve a great review. I have fished this fly for several years and always have success with it. It is a great searching nymph. If there is no specific hatch going on, or a midge hatch, try this fly.

Its winter here in Wisconsin so I haven't had a chance to use these yet. The quality is excellent just as I have come to expect from Orvis products,and they are in my threader box ready for action! Can wait to tie one of these babies on!

Go-To Nymph -
By: Dierks from Colorado
I've been fishing this from March 2012 through December 2012 now and it has become one of my go to confidence patterns. Is it a midge? Is it a BWO or some other mayfly? The pattern is just flat out versatile,and I have had success in rivers, streams, and still waters across Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. I bought a countless number of these flies this year because they just get eaten so much.
Amazing fly -
By: scientificangler from Springville, UT
Versatile and useful on both moving and still waters. If you don't have 16's and 18's in your box you missing fish you could have caught.
Well tied. Worked in BC, Labrador, and of course Utah.
My Go2 Fly -
By: FlyFishilicious from Littleton, Colorado
No matter the time/day/weather etc. this fly always seems to kill it on my local waters. It's my go2fly for sure - so fantastic I keep turning all my fishing friends onto it as well. Higa's SOS has a permanent place in my fly box. Definitely give this one a try - I think your fish will find it as tasty as mine do. :)
Best Baetis Nymph for the West -
By: MantheyFlyFishing from Littleton, CO
This fly has outperformed all other flies in my box this year from tailwaters to spring creeks it just searches and destroys. Fish cannot resist! Pressured fish even take this as a natural! Ive used it in "one fly" competitions with great success. I reccomend all fly anglers throw a few of these in their nymph box...
