A few of these were in a fly box I bought online. They proved pretty successful for me last season fished on the point with a figure 8 retrieve. I landed several trout on them last season and some good carp too.
Judging by the hooks (forged bend, big barbs) they are pretty old, maybe 80's??
They are reminiscent of some Ivens patterns and are very easy to copy; Cock pheasant tail back and whisks, green ostrich herl body, on a LS 12.
One of those general patterns that can be anything from a caddis to a stickleback.
So does it have a name?
