Amazing fly for dry-dropper work!
I busted this fly out on the Norfork River in Arkansas with a ruby midge dropped under it, the results were very surprising. I rarely fish dry flies due to the fact that I spend my time primarily on the tailwaters of Arkansas and the opportunities don't present themselves too often. My intention was to use the fly in-lieu of an indicator with a competition style euro rig, on the first drift through a riffle a trout rose and my hook set broke it off. I put another one on and after a couple drifts another willing rainbow took it and was brought to the net this time. There was no perceptible hatch going on but the trout responded in kind. Ultimately, my best fish of the day (an 18 inch cutthroat) fell victim to the Front-End Loader Caddis #12. Highly recommended and I will definitely be ordering more.
