Great Flies -
Great fly. Great quality tie. Great company. I read many reviews on this fly and decided to give it a try on my home waters in Utah. Worked great the first time out. Thanks Orvis and Spencer

This is my 2nd order of these flies in size 16 and 18. They have attracted fish on slow days, when no other selection seemed to work. Expensive, but effective.
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.
