About the Hern's Caenis Dry Trout Fly

Curse the blighters, but you will need a few of these for summer evenings when the fish will look at nothing else.

Expert Tip:

When a fly is thrown into a still place, a few gentle jerks (after it has remained a second or two on the water) may be given to it, but no greater force should be used than is sufficient to move a foot or two at a time.
