The Papa Roach is renowned for taking big fish, designed by Herman Botes, it has accounted for great catches around south Africa. It is one of the most effective dragonfly nymph patterns ever. This particular variation will work very well in either stained water, or in low light conditions. The big bead eyes and rubber legs will stand out and provide a good contrast against the black body.
A firm favorite in the box.
Fish with a static retrieve near weed beds with a slow figure of eight retrieve on the odd occasion, or alternatively a combination of a figure of eight and short 4 inch, burst strips.
