Ben McGee’s Green Drake One-Two Punch

Green-Drake-Header-2015

For many anglers, the emergence of the Green Drakes on Colorado watersheds signals the height of the summer. There’s nothing like throwing big bugs as the light fades on a warm summer evening. FRA guide Ben McGee designed these two patterns to match the hatch of the Green Drakes on the lower Blue river, but they work great on other waters such as the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork as well. Twist a few up and you’ll have a deadly combo to cover any Drake hatch!
