The Story

Designed to fool the wily brown trout of Vermont's Battenkill. Slow currents and clear water mean the fish get a good look at anything floating by, and every fly presented needs to be just about perfect. Quill body represents the segmented bodies of mayflies, and Coq de Leon crafts a correctly-proportioned tail. A highly visible turkey flat wing and parachute hackle allow a low, realistic ride in the water. Features a barbless, claw-point tactical hook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mayfly imitation I purchased this prior to my recent stilted fishing trip and it was a hit. Great imitation for the hatch i experienced. Even though not a prolific hatch the fly performed well. I will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite dry fly This is my go to fly for wild brook trout and brown trout in wilderness spring creeks and streams. It effectively imitates a variety of mayflies in both emerger and adult stages defending on how heavily you dress the hackle. My favorite feature is the tactical hook. it glides effortlessly out of even the most delicate native trout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have this fly in sulfur. I caught about two dozen brown trout in three hours with this fly and only stopped because i ran out of them (broke them off in fish). I will definitely purchase more of them as soon as I can save up a few more dollars. Extremely effective pattern!
