About the Black Drunken Daddy Trout Fly

The Drunken Daddy is a great imitation of a daddy which has been caught out by the wind and sent flying straight into the water! These daddies do look like they have had a bit too much to drink!

The black silhouette of this daddy, and its size, helps attract fish from anywhere within the water column.

Expert Tip:

Daddy Longlegs become a popular fly when once autumn starts to take a hold, and the fish get the taste for this easy meal real quick. Fish on an autumn's day when there is a slight breeze in the air. Daddies are not strong at flying, they get caught in light winds and often end up on the surface of the water where they make a mouthful for passing trout. Even if the trout are at a depth, the size of the daddies will attract them up to feed.

Country of origin for this trout fly: UK

This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Still Water
