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.
