Thanks Jimmy....Mudbug, for several years my buddy tried to get me to fish the fly and just laughed it off...I mean look at it!! He fished it mainly in moving waters over finicky fish like the Frying Pan in CO. A couple seasons ago, I became a believer and have used it in several situations where our other offerings were being ignored. What makes it work is the wide flaps on the ends of chamois. When it gets wet it flaps like crazy sinking in the water column. I fish it with no weight, letting it sink slowly. Sometimes you have to be a line watcher but more often than not...they slam it like they do most leech patterns. Last season at the end of the season Boyer and I were the only people on Becker. We had very little success until we put these on, several times we were doubled up.
If you have ever seen a large leech swimming it is flapping like crazy and not really going anywhere....this fly emulates that flapping well and that's why I think it works.

Sorry for the poor pic quality, not my specialty

I guess I didn't know what it looked like. I wondered how a knotted chamois strip could possibly move just like a leech. that's about the damnedest thing I've seen. thanks.

I believe what you're saying Dub but I would have to see it to really believe it.

Its one of the best keep secrets until now. I believe Tim Oliver invented the fly. Its a great fly and easy to tie, best part its ugly and catches fish.
