This simple pattern has become one of my go-to patterns for skinny tailwaters like the Crooked River in Central Oregon. I fish it just like I would a Zebra Midge as my bottom fly with heavier flies above. Using a loop knot is critical to get the proper action during your dead drift. You can easily tie well over a dozen an hour with minimal materials making this a perfect guide fly. I tie this pattern in three primary colors; black, olive and brown. Experience tells me that the smaller the better, I prefer to tie these mostly in the 20-24 size range but you can adjust to your local conditions.
