Another simple nymph inspired by Barden's 'Killer', the Hare's Ear, and of course, the Diawl Bach. No further explanation needed. As with the 'Killer', it covers just about everything that swims. A super fly for the washing line when buzzers are on the go. For best results, keep it skinny and keep it messy.
