This is a very slight variation of the Cranberry Larva, a fly that has proven very effective year after year on British Columbia stillwaters. At any time of the year, bloodworms can be a very worthy choice, especially on very windy days or when there is a lack of insects emerging.
The 2nd version of this fly is far from a drastic change from the original, simply replacing the scud backing with stretch tubing. This allows a bit more of a segmented look, with the Cranberry Holo Flashabou shining through for a great haemoglobin representation.
