Arthur Cove was a brilliant angler and innovator. He designed this nondescript fly for both rivers and Lakes. IOt is a simple combination of Hare’s ear and Pheasant tail but has proved deadly on most venues. We have added a beard hackle and feel this makes it a very good sedge pupae imitation . I have caught several very large roach on this pattern by accident too at both Bewl water and Eyebrook reservoir.
