Imitates the adult form of the golden stonefly. Or a grasshopper. Or (in orange) an October caddis. Sometimes trout just can't resist a bunch of rubber legs wiggling on the surface.

The fly is named after a 1960s movie, a 1980s rock band, or an 1880s painting by John Singer Sargent; take your pick.
