Stylistically this fly has a number of traits that I tend to incorporate in my foam dry flies while maintaining that simple, low riding, hopper/stone style that I like. The body and legs hang down in the water a bit and the wings and thorax stay afloat. I like flies that fish can get a good look at, thus some of my low-riding foam patterns. It's got loads of potential for practically endless color combos. I thought the best way to offer this fly is in 3 sizes, 6, 10, and 14, sort of a small, medium, and large. Dunk this fly in some Shimazaki dry-shake liquid and it'll float for hours. The fly is named after my good friend and the fishiest guy I've ever met (don't tell him I said that), Rick. Apparently when he was in college and was drinking too much he also liked to dance while inebriated, so his nickname back then was Dancin' Rick, which a number of his present-day friends had never heard until recently…
