A pretty good fly to have in your box.

Nicely done, Alan. I love that wee little thorax dubbing.

Bob has a great approachand explained it beautifully. My most productive fly this season has been a variation of Richard walkers mayfly nymph tied as a wingless wet. We can use a three fly rig here in Michigan, so when I am prospecting, I'll tie a light, dark, and something in the middle on. The fish seem to key in on a certain color or shape so I'll adjust from there. It helps to have an idea of insects to expect while you're there. but I dont think you could go wrong with any of the choices everyone has listed.

I think the Partridge & Orange and Stewart's Black Spider, although I don't keep records of such things. Both are older patterns that work very well.
+1 - with these two flies, you could catch fish just about anywhere!
Soft and wet - the only way....

Dave - Have you shared that pattern with us yet? If so, could you please share a link to the pattern? I'd like to see an example, and add a couple to my fly box.
