I often fish this pattern late in the evening and on into near darkness, to help see the fly I often use it tied with a black wing which shows up really well against silvery water. The tan and black winged versions have been enough for me so far but in the future I’ll probably get round to trying out a flouro pink or green winged version though Snowshoe dyed in those colours won’t be easy to find.
