About the Hern's Spent Drake Trout Fly
This and an Olive Wulff are all you should need at Mayfly time. It will catch from late afternoon through to first thing the following morning, when last night’s crippled spinners are still twitching in the film.
A truly wonderful pattern to fish.
The selection of the fly requires more judgement, experience, and patience than any other branch of the art.
Alfred Roland 1856
