Damsel fly nymphs are primary food source for fish in lakes, ponds and slow moving sections of many rivers. The nymphs typically hatch in early to mid-summer by crawling up the weeds and grasses on the banks. Though these flies will work in most water depths, fishing them along the edges when the damsel fly nymphs are staging to hatch can be extremely effective. The best way to fish this pattern is on an intermediate sinking line or under an indicator rig, stripped slowly through the water. With realistic eyes and a marabou tail, this version of the damsel fly nymph is hard to beat. Olive & russet available in size 12, 16 & 18; black & brown in size 12, 14, 16 & 18.
TIP: The smaller sizes work really well as a mayfly imitation in a double nymph rig - try it out.
