Kilo's Mangler

Cheech - November, 2021

IAsked Kilo (Josh) about this fly and he said "Listen up folks, I'm not going to tell you how this fly was named, but it mangles the mouths of large trout on a daily basis.  There are a few characteristics that from my experience and professional opinion that make this fly better than the rest of the flies out there.  After graduating from fishing a size 20 Hare's Ear every day, he turned to science and technology to create the best Hare's Ear known to man." I asked about the characteristics, and he just kind of sneered and walked away.  I'm not going to risk asking again.  All I know is that I'm going to tie some.
Kilo is a guide on the local rivers here in Utah, and also manages the warehouse in the shop.
