About the Detached Daddy Blue Trout Fly

The detached style body is excellent for use with both Mayflies and Daddies.
This Daddy variant is a good all-rounder as it's colour lends itself well to an adult damsel imitation.

Expert Tip:

It must be abundantly evident that the fly should drop as lighty as possible on the water and that an awkward unmannerly 'splash' must inevitably mar the illusion.
Alfred Ronald 1856
