Make no mistake, this simple, scruffy little number from the vice of Bewl Head Ranger, Bob Barden, is as deadly as they come. The 'Killer' has taken hundreds of trout for me over the years from day one of the season to the last.
Vary the size and the 'Killer' will suggest practically any invertabrate in its nymphal form - buzzers, sedge, damsels, mayfly etc etc. Be without it at you peril!
