The Papa Roach created by Herman Botes is considered by many to be the top dragonfly nymph pattern in SA. The pattern has fooled many a trophy trout as well as numerous other Stillwater species . 

Fly Revolution is thrilled to have available the 2.0 versions of the Papa Roach tied by the creator himself. A synthetic wing case replaces the original feather wingcase, more durable while still executing the same important function.

The crystal skull eye version is ideal for clear water conditions. A realistic imitation of a nymph's eye. 

Each pack includes :

  • Papa Roach 2.0
  • Papa Roach 2.0 Crystal Skull 

Tied on Mouche 8444 size 8 barbless hooks. 

Herman fishes the pattern on an intermediate line with an 8-12 foot leader depending on water clarity. On a floating line a longer leader set up of 12-15 foot.  Ideal for fishing over reed beds or edge of reed beds.  

Attaching the fly to the tippet with a loop knot is vital for movement. 

Suggested retrieve is a varied figure of 8 retrieve, slow and faster action mixing it up. 

Other retrieve option is long slow, steady retrieve with varying pause lengths. Often the fly is chomped on the pause.
