I was going to ask if anyone used a brighter green version. I've had decent success nymphing with a bright green larva in a 16-ish size. Usually better before the hatch is full blown. Shane, that lafontane pattern is solid. Brandon had two fish straighten his hooks in the same pool. We stalked them and ran 3-4 patterns over the fish with zero response. 1 cast with the pupa got a take. Too bad we only had 2 in the fly box or it might have been a banner day.

Isn't that always the case? Figure out the pattern they prefer and you only have 1, to lose it right away.

I used to be in the same boat but now I never let that happen. I tie entire boxes of all the mayflies and some of the caddis flies I expect to see in the Catskills.
