Purple Haze – Poly Wing
Purple haze fly. Andy Carlson created pattern fly around 15 years ago, and it has been wreaking havoc on trout ever since. The purple haze is essentially a parachute adams, but with purple super floss for the body instead of traditional dubbing. The purple haze fly is a favorite general mayfly imitation with all of our guides, but it also works well when used as a searching pattern. If you have a cloudy day or are fishing periods of low light, then this is one of the best fly choices you can make when fishing the Madison, and we have also had great success with it in the sun as well.
