The weather is starting to warm up nicely and it won’t be very long before we start to see Dragon flies zipping around our rivers and Stillwaters. The dragon fly nymph is generally much bigger than its smaller cousin the Damsel. This pattern will work on small and large Stillwaters and will definitely be one for the Brownies.
Let me know in the comments below where you have been fishing and the successful patterns that have worked for you.
