In Colorado, the Mysis shrimp only occur in a few tailwaters, and these little protein pills grow some huge fish. With the attention these bruisers get from fishermen, there are times when a detailed imitation can make a difference. Marty’s Mysis is a quick, fun tie that looks good!

You can get this fly at Elkhorn Flyshop, as well as the materials to tie your own.
