Hans and the CDC and ELK

Ya, it’s a staple in my boxes. Hans Weilenmann invented the pattern, so it was great to see him twist one up. I tie this up on light scud hooks now and in a couple different colours. Years past it has been my number one producing fly, but it’s been letting me down a bit this year. Too much rain is leaving me with cloudy and high waters…. The nymphs have been shining as of late.
