Notes: Dave Whitlock developed this pattern in the late 1960's and considers it one of his best nymph patterns. The pattern can be tied to represent October Caddis, Mayfly Nymphs, Caddis Emergers, and even Little Yellow Stonefly Nymphs. The impressive aspects of this fly is that it has been a consistent performer for nearly 40 years used upon a wide range of species of trout ,char, and whitefish due to the impressionistic design. Dave was influenced to fur-bodied nymphs tied by Polly Rosborough, Thom Green and Ted Trueblood. Not having the furs they used, he gravitated to the Red Fox Squirrel due to local availability. The material maintains a very appealing and active movement within the water. Using both the squirrel belly and the back fur makes this fly unique, giving it a reddish brown appearance. Air Bubbles and light on the fur give the fly a distinct halo of liveliness.
