A synthetic version of the classic IOBO pattern that is usually tied with CDC. This version catches just as well and is a lot more robust than the CDC version. It's a great general purpose fly for fishing on its own or as the indicator in a duo. The pattern scales well across a range of hook sizes and can be tied to imitate a variety of emerging flies by changing the colour of the TP fibres used to form the body and wing.

But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
