About the Jodies Dogsbody Trout Fly
The Jodies Dogsbody is a remarkable variant of Harry Powell's original 1920s' Dogsbody, seemingly to represent a wide range of upwing naturals.
Remakable as it may seem, this a little known pattern has proven itself to out fish - for me- all other dry fly patterns . Roger Davies 2006
