Rubberleg Crazy Goof Dry Fly

This is an old time pattern with a little new school in it.  We grew up fishing this fly on the Smith River in Montana.  This fly floats incredibly well and can represent a large number of big bugs including drakes, hex's, hoppers, and golden stones.  The tight weave of elk hair on the back of the fly traps air in to the hollow elk fibers and the first spot on the fly to get heavy will be the front hackle which gives the fly a great profile in the water.  The chenille on the bottom of the fly soaks up water which keeps this fly riding low and in the water column which is more realistic to a fish looking up.
