I googled a big mac fly pattern. It looks like a red midge larve variation with a black head and ribs. Same bug different name.

The "BIG MAC" was developed by MR. John Tavenner UNI 0/8 IRON GREY. There is not any "RED" in that pattern.

Big Macs like people come in many sizes and colors. Back in the day my hair was red, now it is gray. Different colors, same me. Smile
