Damsel Artificial Fly

DAMSEL FLIES Trout mainly eat damsel flies in their aquatic nymph state, some of which can reach over one inch long. The damsel fly nymph swims by a rapid movement of its abdomen unlike the closely related dragon fly nymph which achieves propulsion by forcing water out of its backside. 

When you see lots of electric blue damselflies zooming low over the water's surface you know that summer has finally arrived. The Blue Damsel Flyfishing Dry Fly pattern for trout fishing are slim and elegant. All though not a true mayfly it has a number of the same characteristics. The Damsel Nymph is the largest subsurface insect that a fly fishing angler tries to imitate.
