Royal Madam X Pattern
This fly works well all summer long in a lot of areas. I have used it to mimic cicadas, hoppers and especially flying ants. I have found that brook trout and cutthroats are particularly fond of this fly pattern. It can be tied in a variety of color configurations to mimic even more insects. With a yellow body, the madam x does a great job at representing hoppers.
Parachute madam X is a wonderful fly that everyone should own. This is a great floater and a pretty good representation of a lot of different insects. It also happens to be a good floater and is highly visible.
