The Low Rider has appeared in numerous publications like American Angler, Fly Fisherman and Fly Tyer magazine as well as several books and in fly shops and streams around the world. These things are deadly and will produce during baetis and caddis hatches!
How to fish Wilcox's Low Rider:
Dry:
            The Low Rider is a fantastic Baetis pattern that can be fished as a cripple, emerger. The Parachute hackle allows for the pattern to ride flush on the surface while the CDC provides additional floatation and mimics the movements of real wings fluttering on the surface after emergence along with a sparse amount of flash. I designed these on curved caddis hooks which allows for the trailing shuck and abdomen to hang in the water, imitating an emerging insect struggling to escape. Given the choice, fish will almost always decide to take the insects stuck in the surface film rather than one that is able to readily fly away. You will likely notice with the majority of my dry fly patterns offered I have chosen this style of hook to take advantage of this behavior. These can be fished effectively for a range of Baetis hatches through out the season by simply matching the size and color to the hatch you are fishing.   

Dry Dropper:

            Fishing these in tandem as a trailer several feet behind a larger fly like the AC Caddis has proven to be effective wherever trout roam since Baetis and Caddis hatches often overlap, that being said it has taken more than its fair share of trout amid the Caddis hatches as well. Trailing something like a Micro Midge or Little Green Machine several feet behind it on lighter tippet, like, 7X, can also be a deadly combo since midges are likely to be hatching at any given time. This pattern was designed with the discriminating pallet in mind and is a must have from April to October.
