About the Claret Bumble Trout Fly
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 was fished as a dapping fly, which slowly sank and fished as a wet hackle fly.
It is very successful and has therefore has survived in fly boxes for more than 500 years.
The palmered hackles mimic insect legs movement on the surface film.
F M Halford described the fly as " the priceless Bumble".
