Notes

Great all round fly that works well as an emerger. If you are fishing fast streamy water the addition of a palmered hackle aids floatability. Good sedge imitation as the light falls and the varnished head creates a big wake when twitched across the surface, but ensure you have a strong tippet as the takes can be violent, great fun.
