The warmer summer months are upon us now and fish are beginning to look up to the surface.Time to do away with the wool indicators and tie on a well hackled dry fly from which to suspend your nymphs. Manic Tackle have introduced the "guide Chute" to their ever expanding fly collection this season and this one is a ripper. Manic's Hares Ear Guide Chute is quickly becoming my favorite go to dry fly for a dry-dropper set up.
It comes in sizes #12-14 and is an excellent searching pattern in faster-broken water,is easily visible ,floats all day long and can hold a well weighted tungsten beaded nymph suspended beneath it,the distance between the dry and nymph will vary depending on the depth of water but 12-20 inches is about the norm.
The fish seem to be liking them too !
