    Another great attractor pattern is the Renegade. Maybe someone should start a thread on it. A friend of mine and I were fishing Marshall Lake in the Selkirks just out side of Newport, WA. When we got to the launch a kid of about 15 or 16 told us he had caught a bunch of trout on the Renegade and then he said, "I think there must be a Renegade Hatch." My buddy and had a hard time keeping a straight face, but we did have a good chuckle once we got away from the dock.

    For reasons unknown to me and my fishing buddies, a sunken Renegade works in stillwaters for fooling trout.... maybe they represent emergers for the Renegade hatch. :)

    Renegade is the first fly I tie on when I hit backcountry lakes. It has helped to fill many a hungry belly after a day of hiking.
