These lanky buggers have started to invade my house again and it will not be too long before they start to appear in good numbers and the trout will be seen feeding on them. Last season I used a foam daddy to good scucess on many of the stillwaters I fish but this season I am trying something a bit different.
I wanted a fly that sat lower in the water with all those legs attracting the trouts attention, like an unwitting daddy that has started to drown. I decided to attempt this by using a parachute hackle and the result is below. I have yet to catch on it but I have high hopes come the warmer evenings in September.
