The "Jassid". Here is a pattern created by the famous angler and author Vincent Marinaro. The fly which hit the waters back in the 1950's was designed to replicate the leaf hoppers that frequent streams in the late summer and early fall. The Jassid was first tested on the fabled waters of the Letort Spring Run in Pennsylvania where over the years it has fooled some of the most selective wild browns. This fly most likely will not be found in fly shop bins for reasons of cost, one of the materials used is pretty pricey. I tied up a few in size 18, but they are tied to as small as 28. It's nice to fish an historic fly at times.
The "Jassid" is a simple fly and requires few materials. Hook, Body material which is gray mole fur, Hackle, grizzley..and the Wing which is a jungle cock nail.
