About the Cowdung Trout Fly

Our Cowdung, is a today's tying of the original that dates back into the mists of time to when a fly fisherman first stepped apon a cowpat and disturbed the 'Cow Dung' flies which he recognised as the very same flies as the Trout were busily feeding on.
They still are a splended pattern today !!!

Expert Tip:

This fly is to be seen throughout the year. It is very abundant about the middle of March, when vast quantities are seen on the water if there be a high wind. The colour of the male, when newly hatched, is a very bright tawny yellow, that of the female a greenish brown; she is rather smaller than the male, is found in as great numbers on the water and is as good a fly to imitate. This insect is not in full season after the end of April, but in blustering days may be used all the year round. It is a fly that varies much in size, the early specimens being mostly small. Alfred Ronald (1836)
