This pattern is a top 10 tailwater fly. It is meant to act as a midge but can also be mistaken by trout as a baetis (mayfly) nymph. The brown body with the flash in the bead brings vast attraction to the table which makes it even more versatile. I consider this the mercury midges cousin. It works wonders in the San Juan River for me. When it becomes overcast, that's when it becomes even more versatile. Reason being that the overcast weather produces baetis (mayfly) hatches. The baetis have the brown segmented bodies just like this fly pattern does that makes this look like a midge or baetis to the fish. Highly recommended fly where midges and baetis are present. A must have in your fly box!

Unusual pattern (in my neck of the woods, anyway), masterfully executed. Buying more colors and sizes right after I submit this review.

Hopefully these will be some of my "go to" flies here in Maryland on the Gunpowder river north of Baltimore this winter. My 2nd time ordering from Chris and the customer service is outstanding, I highly recommend his fly shop here on Etsy.
