A relatively recent addition to my mayfly armoury. Designed to be fished as a single dry fly, pitched at fish picking of the duns. I've only fished this so far on stillwater - with good results - but see no reason why it won't work on the rivers too. Tied 'semi-compara' with a 45° fanning of the deer hair.
