Several years ago on one of our famous coach trips to Hanningfield with the lads of the LFFA, I and young John Miller (as he was then) were struggling for a take, let alone a fish.  I had tied these flies the evening before, and as a trial I decided to fish one on a intermediate line.  It was a very bright and windy day on Hanningfield but this fly was nothing short of brilliant.  We slaughtered fish, and it has saved many a day since. 

I use it in preference to Waggies. 

Tie one and try it!
