Small fly clipped hair headMighty Mite -- Clipped deer hair with fantastic floatation. My favorite way to fish -- A long flat butt leader, 10 to 12 feet, no weight, a dab of Dilly Wax and striping a greased fly. You see all the strikes and most of them are very exciting. This fly works great any way you want to fish it, top or right under the surface. Colors: Tan or Olive - Sizes 12, 14, 16

Photo/Clumpa -Unique Fishing Flies - Doug Swisher THE "CLUMPA" This dynamite dry fly is one of my deadliest patterns.
