When used at an appropriate time with a good presentation, they are guaranteed to catch fish. Barr tells how he developed each fly, gives tips on when and how to fish them, and explains how he fishes multiple-fly rigs with the Copper John as the center of a 3-fly system that optimizes fish-catching potential.
