Randall Kaufmann is one sharp fly tier and innovator. He is master at taking old patterns and blessing them with a make-over. This fly is one that Randall made magic with. It is like the Starlight Leech, the Egg Sucking Leech, and dozens of other patterns. All fish well and all are fun to tie. These flies use dumbbell eyes to get them down deep. Generally, they have relatively slim bodies and a palmered hackle.
Go get your boxes stocked with Dredger like flies, make up your own color combinations, and have fun – at the bench and on the river.
