A great fly in the summer months for trout, tied with the small philoplume feathers from Hungarian partridge, they are super soft and create a lot of movement. This particular version also incorporates rubber legs and large bead eyes which will help this fly stand out.
Dragonfly nymphs spend most of their time crawling on the bottom of a lake or on a plant structure. They are slow-moving and dart with a ‘jet repulsion’ when fleeing prey.
Fish on an intermediate line with a long leader near weed beds, statically or with a figure of eight retrieve every now and again. One can also fish this pattern closer to the bottom with a full sink line.
