I designed this fly after one trip on a wild stream. I would turn over rocks and find, large, FAT, and dark mayfly nymphs. Hare's Ears and pheasant tails looked nothing like these bugs. So I came home and tied this up. I used a chocolate colored dubbing because that matched the natural color better than any other material I had on hand and I did not go for a slim profile. These were chunky little critters.
