A pattern drawing on classic wet flies such as the Woodcock and Hare’s lug but tied with materials to give it greater buoyancy so that it will sit in the surface film. Vernon S. “Pete” Hidy who coined the term flymph described them as patterns to imitate the hatching insect be it mayfly, caddisfly, or midge, that is in the stage of metamorphosis as it emerges. Suspect this pattern may need some ribbing to give it greater robustness when fished.
