CATE'S TURKEY! Yikes! I LOVED that fly on Davis Lake in Oregon, where it got invented. SO good, SO sparse. A good mayfly nymph, yes, also a good general small nymph for everything else. I loved it for a midge nymph.
Now I live in NZ where it is not known. I haven't used it here. Now why is that??? I'm going to dig them right out and start using them here!!
