This scruffy looking fly has been one of my best patterns for Browns for the last 3 seasons.. dressed on 12-10 Captain Hamiltons or similar round bend hooks.....I love this one.....The Olive wing is a medium Olive I dye myself, dressed to extend beyond the tail... but I dont think its critical.. I have found this fly fishes best in a little sunshine, fished quite fast figure of eight.. in clear water
