The 'Quasimodo' fly is a mayfly attractor pattern that is tied similarly to the Pheasant Tail Nymph. This is a great fly for tailwaters, spring creeks, and any water system where mayflies are present.

This is a great pattern for large western freestone rivers or any trout fishing scenario when the water is off-color and you need to grab the attention of a feeding trout.

This is also a productive pattern to use after large rains when runoff causes worms to float down into the river system. Tune in as Jared teaches us how to tie this simple pattern with step-by-step instructions.
