Rob Crandalls UV2 Devils Candy Blk/Cer
Tied by Spirit River:
This is a killer leech pattern tied on a size 2 hook.
8-15 just in from Rob, Just wanted to touch base. We have been doing well on the lower Deschutes with the Crandall patterns by Spirit River. This year with the drought conditions we face, White River a tributary to the lower Deschutes has been adding a lot of glacial melt. This colors the entire lower Deschutes River for about 50 miles. This is prime time for steelhead fishing in this section. With reduced visibility (often only 20") traditional methods with dry lines are failing. To produce results for my clients on a daily basis we have switched to sink tip lines and the Crandall's Wedding Dress in cerise and blue to get results. The jointed body of this pattern moves the fly a lot and the flash material draws in strikes from aggressive fish. Plainly said, we are catching fish when others are getting blanked!
