About the Orange Bumble Trout Fly

The Orange Bumble works well in bright sunny conditions when there is a light ripple on the surface of the water.

Expert Tip:

The idea behind dapping is to get the fly to skip across the waves or ripples.

A reasonable wind is a prerequisite, too little and the fly does not "work" properly, too strong and the whole thing becomes very difficult to control

As it is only the fly that touches the water the fish are unaware of any line being attached to it and they seem to find this skipping action of the fly tantalizing and irresistible, indeed, often they will come out of the water and attempt to take the fly in mid-air.
