Looking for a unique mop fly that stands out from the rest? Look no further than Daryl Eakins Umpqua's Detroit Mop City fly. This fly boasts a tapered and curved tail, a breathing thorax, and feathers and dubbing for the collar and wing, making it an irresistible aquatic grub or crane fly larva imitation.
Available in small and medium lead eyes, this fly offers versatility for both still water and river fishing. Don't let the small lead eyes fool you, as a gentle pendulum cast with a drag and drop finish can yield impressive results.
For river fishing, try using the DMC as your point fly and pairing it with a dropper of your choice for a tight line approach. This is especially effective in deep runs where fish are holding and visibility is poor, making the DMC a go-to for euro-nymphing techniques. Don't miss out on the personality and effectiveness of the Daryl Eakins Umpqua's Detroit Mop City fly.
