This fly was my second ever design or enhanced; that was about 15 – 18 years ago for fishing on the Huron River in Michigan for Smallmouth and various Panfish. But to my enjoyment I had great luck fishing other rivers in Michigan for Trout with this fly and in the Smokey Mountains for Trout. This is probably one of my go-to flies that are always in my box. If you wanted to, you can substitute a heavier bead in front that is red to get down deeper in the water.
