"The rusty nail was originally invented for the Colorado river. The Colorado sees an abundance of rusty spinners which the fish key on, and this fly is the perfect color scheme.
Tied with an extra large tungsten bead on the jig, this fly simply gets down quick when you need it to drop in the zone.
I fish this fly spring through fall on my guided float trips with great success. There’s just something super fishy about the color scheme, weight, and presentation which the fish cannot resist."
