BWO Iron Lotus Fly

Since trying out the PMD Iron Lotus a few months ago, it has caught fish consistently on many different rivers. It is a great mayfly imitation. Last week I pumped a few fish stomachs and noticed that trout are beginning to feed heavily on Baetis (BWO) nymphs once again. Fall temps have cooled things off and BWO nymphs have become much more active. The BWO Iron Lotus (pictured above) has already been hammering fish, and I am sure it will continue as more BWOs nymphs continue to mature.
