Sedgeback Skwala by Fulling Mill
Burkas' Sedgeback Skwala Dry Fly
Hairwing dry flies tend to entice even picky fish. Often the water conditions during an early season Skwala hatch can be quite clear and the trout are holding in flat water. In essence the trout have time to size up the fly.
"Skwalas are the first substantial stoneflies to emerge in the Rocky Mountains. This style has produced on the South Fork Snake, Madison, Big Hole, Owyhee, Bitterroot and Yellowstone rivers." - Ken Burkholder
