This is a searching pattern, ideal when cruisng fish are about but not eating agressively. It has victimized many lake Rainbows. Very simple & effective pattern. Best to cast it out and retriev with a steady, not fast, retrieve. Initially the fly floats, then penetrates the film, then actually begins to sink about 1/2 inch below the surface. Look for "following fins" and hang on. Constant and steady retriev is the best technique.
