On the hunt for a reliable fly for mayfly emergers? Look no further than the Film Critic fly, designed by the renowned Bob Quigley. Dubbed the king of the “film”, Quigley created this fly to match mayflies during their most vulnerable stage of the hatch, as they transition from nymph to dun.
Mayfly emergers are often stuck in the surface film for an extended period of time, making them an easy target for trout. However, their picky nature can make it challenging to find the right fly. That's where the Film Critic comes in - Quigley incorporated all the essential elements that trigger fish to bite during this stage, including a shuck and tail, low-riding body, sparse hackle, and a prominent wing that both trout and angler can easily spot.
Don't let picky trout ruin your day on the water - tie on a Film Critic and get ready for some action.
