The, fly, fishing Shop
This is Matt Grobert's extended body light cahill dry. You really never know what might be the lucky pattern and color on any specific day so I find it best to always have a vast selection with.
Believe it or not, these things fish even better than they look. Also do not be afraid to give the fly a little life. Thread torque will help carry them to the top of the hook shank. With the fibers pulled down, place the feather on the near side of the hook and pick up your bobbin with your left hand.
And that is the simple fact that one cannot have to many different hopper patterns. A few timely strips will send big trout into a feeding frenzy. Select a single wood duck flank feather. As far as the equipment standpoint, I like to cast this fly with a 5 weight rod and a floating fly line.
