Rubber Legged Evil Weevil

This is a variation of Jeremy Davis’ Evil Weevil, a fly which has been quite productive in the streams with trout of all stripes. This version of the weevil uses silicone legs taken from a bass skirt. You can find these in an infinite variety of colors and patterns to suit your needs. To finish the fly, a dab of UV resin will set the wingcase and secure the thread.
