The Littlebird wet fly is a very productive pattern for me through most of the spring and summer hatches. An excellent search pattern when swinging wet flies, and also as a trail pattern behind a bead-head. When fished alone i do not weight this pattern, keeping it at or below the film. Excellent on skinny water.
