Great classic fly! Quality hook and materials that withstand multiple hook ups! Have had good success with this one!

The flies are made very well. Some of the best quality I’ve seen. Fished this fly on a few lakes. Caught a few rainbows and the fly held up. Hook never bent and the fly stayed intact. I would buy again.

Very well done fly. Have already used a couple of them successfully. Ascent makes very good flies.
