Don't discount this fly at all. There's a long story behind it and I can tell you that this is deadly on Large Kamloops Trout as well as Trout in my neck of the woods.For detailed instructions see the pattern notes in The Leach Swap since I submitted this exact pattern there too. This pattern has been a long time "secret Weapon" of mine. If you look at the Acetate floss leach it was made with the same Dubbing rope (blend) as this fly was. Try it and you''l see. but, really watch it in the water and tell me it doesn't look real!
