The Story

There are times on the river when you see clouds of small black insects hovering over the water. Inevitably some of these will fall into the water and trout will eat them. Use this black gnat when you see these swarms of bugs in the air and there is no sustained hatch going on. This small dry fly for trout is a great imitator for any dark insect. Color, Black.

Size: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! This fly looks good enough to fool any fish, but I'll have to find out this summer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New one to me . . . . curious about it! It is a popular fly with the rainbow trout in the Taccoa River. Particularly effective in the evening near the outflow of the rapids when there are cloudy skies.
