Mop Fly- Mopchu Picchu Worm
Mop Fly- Mopchu Picchu Worm. Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located in the Cusco Region of Peru. Scholars can only hypothesize about its uses but we do know it was built during the height of the Inca Empire and abandoned roughly 100 years later as a belated result of the Spanish Conquest. Just as in fly fishing, the ways and traditions of the Inca's have changed and been abandoned but will never be forgotten. The Mopchu Picchu Worm is big and grandiose like Incan architecture. Trout love this oversized chenille worm more than most things you can throw at them. The material offers great movement and bold colors. Fish them in clear water or high, turbid water. You wont believe it. Pattern is combined with a brass cone and heavy, size 8 hook so it sinks like a stone.
great stuff—dave is the best!

I’ve been buying a few things from Dave over the years, going back to his old days in Michigan. His goods and his advice is top notch. This fly is clever and unusual—which is Dave at his best. You can’t go wrong with a Dave Hise fly. And you really need to reach out to him for advice and know how.
