Comments: This fly was designed for one particular fishing condition - and that is when the water is very deeply coloured after heavy rain. 

It is simply meant to stand out and be seen at those times when the visibility is so poor that the trout can barely see our flies through the murk.

It has proved its worth at Thornton when the water has been badly coloured, and would probably work in similar conditions elsewhere.

If it was used when the water clarity is normal it would probably only scare the living daylights out of the fish!  Nevertheless it is well worth carrying a couple just in case.
