About the Gilbey's Lilttle Dark Sedge Trout Fly
Lunn dressed this fly for those warm and sultry summer evenings, when the dark Sedges are dancing over the water.
There is one great difference between running and still water which stands out above all others. In running water the fish is stationary, its food is brought to it, also the angler's fly. In still water the food is stationary, floating on the surface, and the fish wanders in search of it; so the angler's fly must be stationary, and it should be placed on the surface just where the wandering fish is most likely to come across. There's, however, one exception: floating flies may be blown along the surface of the water, and the fish may remain in one place, taking them as they drift by.
