The Mercury RS2

The Mercury RS2 is one of my staple patterns in my box.  It passes for so many bugs and does it really well.  It often comes out to play when I need an additional trigger such as a bit more flash in deeper water or even off colored water.  I especially like this pattern in a size 22 for trico nymph and emergers and sunk spinners.


  1. Awesome pattern Juan. One of my favs.


  2. Juan, great pattern. My friend and I have had really good success with this pattern tied with either a rust or pale yellow body this past spring. We tied it on # 16 hooks. I like the bright white antron for the wing better than the original feather wing. I think the antron acts as a trigger. Thanks for the video. Jake
