Uses

What insect does this old-time, traditional pattern look like? Some think it suggests two mating midges. Whatever. It has peacock herl, a material whose trout catching ability should never be underestimated.The fly seems to be at its most effective during midge hatches (use size 14-18).

 

How to Fish

Dress the fly with floatant and use standard dry fly presentations.
