Larry Larsen developed this pattern on the South Fork of the Snake for the Jackson Hole One Fly event in 2005. Originally called the "Deep Throat", the fly was designed to ride a little lower than standard "Cherb" style bugs as well as be lighter. Big cutthroat approaching flies from below would open their mouth's to inhale the bug and if it was a high floater or had too much mass, they would refuse, but this fly solved the problem. The Legend is a great nocturnal stone pattern as well as Golden, Skwalla, and Salmon Fly. Cast close to structure and "twitch" with the rubber-legged version. Great "pressured water" fly for selective trout or late season. Grease the wing and fish dry or with dropper. Sizes 8, 12.

Customer Reviews for Larson's Legend Golden Stone Dry
"I've used this pattern for the last two months on the Yakima River in WA, the St. Joe in ID, and a planned trip to the Kootenai in MT this weekend. The fish can't seem to stay away from it - rides low, like a golden should as they emerge from the water - very realistic. Great as a dry alone, for bead-head droppers too.
