Another Dave Hise original. Hise's Waxy is a deadly waxworm imitation, especially for winter trout and steelhead. Notice the legs on the critters underside? Pretty cool.
I have heard conflicting reports about what a waxworm actually is but have come to the belief that it is the larvae of a certain moth, Pyralidae. In the wild, these creatures live as nest parasites in bee colonies where they eat the cocoons, pollen, shed skins of bees; but, they also chew through beeswax. Fish love 'em but they probably wont ever see them in their natural environment. Waxy is most effective when dead drifted under an indicator or high stick nymphed through the runs and pools. Designed and hand tied by Dave Hise. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
Size: 6, 8. One fly per $5.95.
