Chubby Chernobyl Mini Tutorial
No, this isn't a big fly but it does a ton of work early in the summer and throughout the summer on watersheds with abundant Brook Trout populations. This has quickly become one of my top go-to flies for it's simplicty and ability to support a dropper for when you find a deeper run.
Here we're tying with a peach foam that has been very effective for us the past few years. Play with the fun colors like purple and chartreuse in addition to the classic tans, yellows, and olives.
