...So what is it called?
I'd call it "bound to cath fish". Seriously, I have never seen that pattern, appears to be a variation of a bugger. I would imagine that smaller versions of that pattern would be great on practically any freshwater game species, as well as some of the near-shore marine species such as reds, (sea) trout, and small tarpon. I'll have to tie a few of those up this weekend!
After what I've been tying recently, the chance to tie something that takes less than 5 minutes per fly is welcome!
