    Body: Brown floss (untwaxed)
    Hackle Grizzly Met
    Hook: Mustad 94840R-10 dry fly, size 18

    Thin body was a result of limited supplies when I first tied this fly. It was the early season years ago, I had been fishing, the Pine, Chafe, Wedde, Mecan, Tomorrow and Waupaca rivers and was running out of Griffith’s Gnats. I tied a few of these on the hood of my truck and knew the body lacked mass, but the end result was continuing my hot streak regardless or the body girth.  I found by using slightly oversized hackle, I could trim the fly to fit the situation. Trim more of the bottom to sit lower on or slightly in the water,  trim most of the body and dress it with Sine and fish it like a nymph, (used as a dropper it was highly effective on the tomorrow.  It ain't pretty, it ain't spectacular looking, but it put a lot of Trout in my hands that weekend.
