About the The Usual Trout Fly
The Usual is a very simple pattern, but don't let it's basic appearance fool you into thinking its a sub-standard fly.
This fly is ideal for making full use of water Surface Tension, making it sit just above the water, tempting anything underneath.
The Usual is an ancient pattern designed back when tying was limited to locally available materials. Traditionally this pattern was tied using rabbits fur, hence a large availability and a dominant pattern of its time. It still produces great results to this day.
Creator of this trout fly: Francis Betters
Country of origin for this trout fly: New York, US
