Tying the Grey Fox Variant

Grey Fox Variant



Art Flicks Grey Fox Variant is a classic pattern that has stood the test of time.  While Flick did not originate the Variant style, this particular variation is said to have been one of his most endearing patterns. Originally tied to fish the Green Drake hatch, I have found it to be an excellent search/attractor pattern on most any water. Give it a try. You may just be surprised at what an old classic can do.
