Fishing Tip

The way I got the pattern, I was fishing a stream by a pig farm and these bugs were all over. When they hit the water the fish were right on them. So I grabbed a couple and brought them home to copy.

I fish them in the late afternoon till dark .They seem to die off during this time.  They are fished dry and need to be coated. ~ DU
