Daddy time

Just started tying and topping up my Daddys as they’ve had a right hammering from the trout this season. They love these flies and it’s hardly surprising. There is nothing more insecty looking than the Crane Fly or Daddy Long Legs. And what a mouth full for the feisty trout. A little fiddly to tie but a great fly to imitate. Works really well fished dry or sinking. If allowed to sink get ready for takes at any time as it falls through the water layers. The natural fly is prolific late summer and Autumn but I like to try them all season. If you type “Crane Fly images” into your search engine there are lots of nice pics to study and copy from.   Never go anywhere without your Daddys. Tight Lines Howie
