Stillwater Fly Fishing (Techniques For Catching More Trout)
For me, this pattern is mainly a nymph inspired by the very versatile and effective stillwater nymphs named Diawl Bachs , but as you have noticed, I like to add a distinctive element to the patterns ofromnatural materials - most often in the form of a contrasting head.
It is no different in this fly, which I originally tied as a larger nymph, which had a body of black Straggle Chenille and thorax of the same material, but in fluo orange color. Over time, however, I stopped using chenilles - because of their artificial and unnatural appearance - and I preferr bodies from dubbing material - especially at stillwater flies. So I modified the original pattern to this look and suddenly it became my favorite lake nymph for rainbow trout.
Black color is my favorite color for flies due to its best visibility for fish in any colored water - as opposed to other colors. If we add to it a distinctive element such as fluo head or glossy ribbing, we can assume that such a fly will love by the fish! This pattern is clear proof! With this nymph I prefer fishing on subsurface Hover or slow intermediate fly line and as a point fly in case the dropper is a more prominent nymph Orange Nymph style.
I chose this type of buzzer mainly because of its versatility. I love catching even on subtle patterns of epoxide buzzers and other types of chironomids, but this fly is usable even in the period when the fish ignore the pupae of the midges and switch to another type of food. As in the previous model, this fly is successful purely as a natural two-color fly tied from black seal and natural hare mask dubbing. Orange "cheeks", however, give it the right charm and again function as an excellent, distinctive trigger point for fish.
Whether this pattern for a fish is a pupa, caddis or other water creature - we don't know it exactly, but one thing is certain is most effective when fishing with a floating or subsurface Hover fly line with other similar nymph or wet patterns of lake flies. Its versatility lies on the leader location as well. I often connect it as a point fly, but also as a dropper fly.
It depends on the choice of other flies and their weight and size! In the case of greasing the chest of a hare with a suitable floatant , it is excellent as a subsurface emerger that is held in the surface blank while the body is submerged. This method is suitable when the fish are actively feeding, but ignore the flies on the surface and do not respond to the flies in the water column at the same time!
