The basic bead head. Tied #16 through #20 is one of the most consistent flies in my box. A classic pattern that is one of the most productive variations of the original.
The C2C is my contribution to the GRHE legacy. It took the place of the original for me from coastal cutthroats on the Olympic Peninsula to the streams of the Mount St Helens drainage and Eastern Washington. As I moved back east it remained at the top of my box, and more than 25 years later, the C2C remains my "One Fly" pattern.
