Tailwater Tiny

Tailwater Tiny
Printable Version

I came across this pattern a number of years ago, up in Montana, at Tim Tollett’s Frontier Anglers in Dillon. It is a killer pattern on tailwaters. Tie this pattern in black with a big black thorax, black tail and silver wire for a good trico imitation. It can also be tied in other colors such as rusty brown.
