This fly was generated by a fantastic UK fishermen and tier: Craig Mcdonald They fly works fantastic in fast rivers and stretch parts behind rocks where trout and grayling are located.
I tested this fly this Summer, frankly is very colored fly and not on my taste because I prefer to use more natural colored nymphs. I was really impressed and from the end of this Summer, this nymph has a special place in my fly box.
*Hook: Demmon ST 320 #12-16
*Thread: 70 DEN white
*Tail: Orange hot color thread tied in strands and cut to size
*Body: Troutline Dubbing Rainbow Rust
*Ribbing: Silver wire ( the original has a red wire instead)
*Hackle: one turn of CDC barbs
*Tungsten: slotted in copper color
I think that the CDC barbs tied as sparse as possible ( to not cover the body ) andthe body color combination make the fly so efficient!
Thanks Craig for your great fly! 🙂
