A variation on the tried and true Hare's Ear Nymph.  There is nothing special about this fly in it's appearance, but it is a consistent producer.  It does a good job imitating caddis larva found in most waters.  The fly when dry is quite a mess (hence the name) but it takes on a much different look when wet.  My general nymph box is never without a dozen of these.
