I've used this fly to catch some surprisingly large trout while fishing surprisingly (and often frustratingly) small streams. Trying to find where those trout were holed up was like hunting through a Where's Waldo? (or Where's Wally? for my British comrades) page looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. The colors were obviously inspired by Waldo, too.
This fly uses the two-color yarn method as described here.
- Hook: Size 12. I usually use dry fly hooks for the very small and shallow streams this fly was designed for.
- Body: Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift Scarlet and Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift White
- Hackle: Size 12 grizzly dry fly hackle (rooster tail feather)
- Weight: None
- Thread: Red. I like 70-denier UTC Ultra Thread.
