- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I agree with Rich below. Great at those alpine lakes where fish aren't picky. I haven't had issues with any of the Umpqua flies so keep them coming.
This is a good fly. Used it mainly at high altitude lakes where the fish don't seem to be super picky. They just want something bushy that looks good. It worked, and it didn't fall apart.
Umpqua seems to make decent flies. Sometimes you get one that falls apart quickly but for the most part I'm happy with them.
