Pretty as a picture, so to speak.

Well tied, nicely done for you...
I dry fly I often call upon with red body come autumn, here in the Catskills...

I've always been curious about this pattern, but never have attempted one.
Question: are these good on small brookie streams?
I always select a durable fly that floats really well for those types of streams,
and this fly looks like it would float like a cork - even without floatant applied.
Is that true?
Given the bulbus body shape - do they do well in mid-summer when terrestrials are about?
What sizes are they effective? #12? #14? Looks like a tough tie to do on a hook much smaller than that...
I may have to give one a try.
Brown Bivisibles, Cinbergs, Ausable Bombers, Elk Hair Caddis, and Quacks are my current go-to's for brookies, and they do well.
But this fly is intriguing...

The Humpy imitates nothing particular. It can be fished as a beetle, fluttering cassis and everything in between. It fishes best on choppy spots. Even a little skittering works to entice a grab.
I prefer smaller sizes, 14 and 16 for my fishing.

Has been a while I tied a few Humpies.
Stay safe everyone!
