Very nice! A pattern I should fish more! Size 12 - one for the dropper?

Yeah fished as a dropper in normal circumstances or fished on its own in some of the less lively pools that my own beat develops in very low water. At times such as this if you fish 2 flies you invariably catch bottom. Fish a single fly and these pools sometimes turn up fish.
