Looks like one Teddy would fish. Not that's justification to do so. Haha.

Look's like it'll float like a lifejacket Dave & pretty much all "Daddy" patterns work well. There's a simple-ish "damp" version that's always worth a space or three in any box, l.s. 10/12 (Kamasan B800 or similar) natural raffia body with a fine oval rib wound in opposing direction, & a g.p. tippet hackle about the same or slightly longer than the shank, fished as a point fly on an 8lbs co-polymer leader, as they can hit this one hard !

We call that a crane fly in my neck of the woods. Love the fly and I just know that thing would work...WELL!!!
