Notes: After taking many photos of aquatic insects I noticed that many Mayflies had a red tinge to them. I liked John Barr's Copper John, but it was often too heavy for slow moving tailwaters like the Missouri and didn't drift naturally as well as hung the bottom too often. This fly is lighter and moves better and is a killer just prior to PMD hatches. The 3x tippet gives it segmentation, translucency and durability.
