I know through the analytic tools that You Tube provides me that River fishing bugs are the least popular of the videos that I make. So, why persevere with making them? Well the truth of the matter is that although I know it’s not always about catching fish the clue is in the name ‘Fishing’! If I am going to take the time and effort to go and do something I want to try my best to do it well.
It is just a simple fact that fish spend the bulk of their time feeding below the surface. The best way to catch fish consistently is to have a fly pattern fishing below the surface. Anyway I seem to be going of at a tangent, this fly just works, it is easy to tie and will catch you Grayling and trout.
Let me know your thoughts of dry fly Vs nymphs in the comments below.
