Notes: When we first opened up the shop in 2017, I was tying Green Drakes for my upcoming trips on the Henry’s Fork.  While we had some patterns in the shop that work just fine, I always want something different to fish.  This hatch is one of my favorites as the Green Drake natural is a very robust bug.  Its thick, juicy body sits on the surface and appears to be wearing high-heeled shoes as it stands up tall.  Trout on the Henry’s Fork gulp these flies with reckless abandon and they love to put the smack down on JoJo’s Green Drake!  – Joe
