The Madam X has hit the ground running ever since it was first introduced. The beauty of this fly is that it imitates such a wide variety of bugs. Including, stoneflies, grasshoppers, and even caddis. Rubber legs on a terrestrial pattern are always a good way to catch more fish and this pattern does that perfectly. Twitching these along the water and creating dead drifts will get you strikes throughout the day, even if nothing is hatching. It’s a fly that covers the bases of so many popular imitations which is why it’s so good.
