A very simple fly to tie. Suggest that you also tie it in a tan or ginger colors. One day at Roaring River, I watched this one fly fisherman catch a trout just about every time he made a cast. When the fly was lost, I approached him. He was tying on a Griffith’s Gnat but the color was a tan or ginger color.
