If you are heading to the high county and want to get eager trout to sip dry flies you can bet this one will do the trick. Best fished under cover of brush or along grassy banks where beetles are subject to falling in the water. This is one of the best dry flies to utilize from early spring well into late fall. After all what fish wouldn’t love to slurp a nice juicy beetle like grub!
