This is an excellent pattern by Ed Engle and can be found in his book Tying Small Flies. Fishing a sunken spinner at the tail end of a trico spinner fall will extend the hatch. Trout continue to feed on the spinners as they become water logged and begin to sink. Excellent when fished as a dropper under a dry fly.

This is a great all around summer attractor or hopper imitation. This color scheme has been a great all purpose color for me. It seems to cover a variety of big terrestrial insects- hoppers, crickets, flying ants, and big beetles. I tie this pattern in sizes 8-14.
