A great fly in the summer months for trout, tied with the small filoplume feathers from Hungarian partridge, they are super soft and create a lot of movement.
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 a floating line with a long leader near weed beds, fish static with a figure of eight retrieve every now and again.
As the seasons change the weed dies off and turns brown. When this happens towards the end of May, fishing brown naturals will work a little better than the same pattern in Olive.
