It is suggested that the Bumbles origins date back to Derbyshire in the 1500's when the fly was attached to a horsehair line. The fly, when first alighting on the water is fished as a dapping fly, which slowly sinks and is then fished as a wet hackle fly. The palmered hackles mimic insect legs movement on the surface film.
The Bumble is a series of Classic wet flies that are very effective when fished as part of a team of flies for traditional loch style fishing.
For example, the Golden Olive Bumble comes into its own as an attractor when on bob. However don't underestimate when fished singularly as it can be a real killer. They are truly superb during a Mayfly hatch on Lochs and lakes, especially in gentle waves.
