Scouting Report

High floating fly is virtually unsinkable and very easy to see on the water with its high upright wing. The Chubby Chernobyl is a great general searching pattern that can be used to imitate Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, or hoppers depending on size and color. The Chubby also makes an incredible hopper-dropper fly due to its high buoyancy and easy visibility in all types of water.
