About the Olive Bugger GH Trout Fly
This damsel was created with a long tail to catch those fish too lazy to chase a normal sized creation. It has been very successful, accoutung for thousands of fish on UK stillwaters.
From small waters, lakes and beyond - this fly is a fish taker!
The key to successful stillwater fishing is to fish at the right depth. You can only find this by trial and error, using the countdown method. The first time you cast, count to 10 before you start your retrieve. Count to 15 on the next cast, 20 on the next and so on. Vary the depth each cast and when you catch a fish or one takes a look at your fly, with your next cast, count to the same number and the fly should be at the same depth again.
