About the Blue Flash Beadie Damsel Trout Fly
The Blue Flash Beadie Damsel is becoming one of the most popular small still water lures in the UK and Europe.
The damselfly nymph comes into its own in summer months when main feeding occurs.
Try the edges of weedbeds for Trout patrolling close in for this food.
In summer months when the mass migration of Damselfly nymphs occurs, use a Floating Line and long leader with a slow figure of eight retrieve or a series of short twitches.
The rest of the year can produce using an intermediate or Sinking Line with a varied rate of retrieve.
Retrieve at moderate pace with short jerky action to activate tail especially in the vicinity of weed which is just under the surface and adjacent to bank side reeds.
I hope that you will agree that the glass beads produce a very translucent and realistic effect. John Smith 2007
