Sparkle Larva

The Winona Fly Factory has been busy at the vise, cranking out some nasty fine patterns. I'm diggin' the Sparkle Larva; the pure simplicity of this pattern is overlooked by its sheer beauty. Sparkle Sparkle, the original.

I threw a twist on WFF's pattern and tossed on a tungsten head for those soft-mouthed bottom feeders. I swapped the peacock herl thorax for my signature glimmer flash chenille in peacock.

Bottom's up!
