Bennett’s Exasperator

Yes, another one of my patterns but how could I not mention a fly that I fish 90% of the time in winter?  This fly doesn’t have that much “fly bin appeal” but wait until you get it in the river and watch it swim in the current.  Designed to promote as much movement as possible, the Exasperator creates a vortex behind the head and pectoral fins.  This vortex creates turbulence and therefore movement in the tail.  It also causes the rabbit strip tail to flare in the water to produce a larger silhouette.  The trouty colors of olive and natural brown are also great for dollys, trout and bass.
