HiVis BWO Last Chance Cripple
The Last Chance Cripple pattern was designed by famed angler and tier Rene Harrop. The pattern was designed to fish for picky fish on spring creeks and the Railroad Ranch on the Henry's Fork. This pattern incorporates a CDC wing that imitates a crippled bug trapping air bubbles, making the insect look vulnerable, and an easy target. It can be tied to match any Mayfly by changing the size and color. It is an extremely effective pattern to fish when fish seem to refuse your traditional dry fly, and we love to use as a trailing fly with our dry fly, or trail a traditional soft hackle behind it.
