The Bottle Rocket was designed around the effectiveness of the traditional Tadpole. Slightly improved for better buoyancy and durability when retrieved quickly.

Imitates: Small chub, aquatic beetles, dragon fly nymph, perch fry

Useful for: Pyramid Lake Stripping behind a fast sinking shooting head.

Tricks/Techniques: Great fished in addition to a second woolly worm. This fly works well when the bottom is covered in slime. It hovers above the sand behind a fast shooting head/sinking line type 5 or faster. Leave long pauses between strips to allow the fly to rise.
