The Adult Damsel is designed to mimic the damsel flies which are found in lakes and stillwaters throught the United States. Anyone who has spent any time around a lake or pond in the summer has probably seen hundreds of damsel flies flying about and landing on the grasses along the edges. In New Mexico alone there are 28 different species of damsel and dragon flies! During the summer months, these insects make up a large portion of many a trout's diet. This dry fly pattern, tied with foam and a large hackle, makes it float extremely well.
TIP: A small damsel nymph or chironomid suspended from this fly, makes a killer “dry-dropper” rig.
