Fly of the Month
Mike Lawson developed this fly in the early 70’s to match the dark colored caddis
hatches on the Henry’s Fork. He named it after his friend Jack Hemingway who used
almost exclusively when fishing that hatch. It is still used with great success today.
It is often tied with wood duck flank fibers as an underwing. Clip the abdomen hackle
on top before tying in the wing.
Hook : Dry fly; #12 - #20
