Dahlberg diver- fairly close to original I think-" A delivery system for flashabou". In my opinion one of the most truly original fly designs. This version is great for river smallmouth. Back in my days at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard I spent some pleasant days pitching these against the bank of southern Maine rivers.

Like I said, that's just my own thoughts. Absolutely zero proof that it would actually make a difference lol. That fishery is so crazy. There are times I think the fish would eat any fly in existence, and other times when they are so damn selective it had better be exactly what they want. Ultimately I reckon a good variety of size, color, profile etc on hand is about the best anyone can do.
Do they ever key in on shrimp/krill? I’ve a thing for tying shrimp patterns.
