Started fishing them about 5 years ago through the winter on Small Stillwaters, Farmoor and Draycote.....Pink, White, black are my ‘go to’ colours. They are probably one of the most effective patterns going in the cold months.....Devastating!
I’ve fished them on everything from a floater to a Di7.....Snake Booby is also a cracking variation as well. Think Rob Edmonds might have been one of the first to add foam on the front.

Best fished on a single hook (cut the front one off at the bend) as it avoids wrapping around it self. Good fly to have around on it's day. _________________ To be able to wing correctly a small dry fly is the height of attainment in trout fly dressing and is the most difficult part of the art...
