This months fly is the Pat's Rubberleg nymph. It was created by Pat Bennett a fishing guide from Island Park, Idaho. It started out as a popular fly in the Rockies and is now being used all around the world. It has certainly become one of our favorite and most effective nymphs. It works very well in the spring with a worm or egg dropper. I believe another reason it is so good in the spring time is that it also is a good imitation of the cased caddis that are so abundant in our rivers.
