Featured Fly - The Sugar Daddy

This is a very effective pattern that Lenny of the TCO Bryn Mawr store came up with. This pattern works great year round, having the hot spot collar gives fish something extra to key in on when there isn't much bug activity. I like to use the sugar daddy as a dropper off a caddis, or under a Stonefly nymph! Enjoy
