Here’s what you must know about the 7-11 BEFORE you buy one or many (high five).  “The first 7-11 was created by a confluence of the superintelligent East Indians and a herd of 7-10.  It is believed that the 7-11 evolved from the 7-10, a prehistoric herd animal.  The 7-10 were common when all of Earth’s landmass was concentrated in to one supercontinent; Pangaea.  The 7-11 was on every corner of earth until the supercontinent broke apart which was actually caused by one of Chuck Norris’ temper tantrums. The influence of the 7-11 on humanity has been tremendous.  Former hunter and gatherer societies, upon finding “clusters” of 7-11 (BWO’s) would settle there rather than continuing their nomadic lifestyle.” (Source: Urban Dictionary)

We can’t make this stuff up.  The 7-11, although simple comes with so much bravado we don’t dare contest its ability to deceive early spring or late fall trout looking for the first signs of the BWO mayfly hatch.  This is a fly we have tied for a long time and mostly always just for ourselves because they are quick to tie and work extremely well, some would call it a “guide fly.”  Classify it however you want, on the Missouri River where we fish a lot it’s important to not overdress our flies, and especially mayfly designs.  The brown UV dubbing behind the wing gives the fly just enough attention to stand out from the millions of naturals it has to compete with when lots of aquatic BWO mayflies are beginning their journey to becoming an adult.  During a tough lighting day, when a larger dry is necessary for visibility this is also a great dropper fly because it has little weight and a micro wing behind the bead.
