About the Dambuster Trout Fly

The Dambuster is a variant of the old worm fly and was created for a specific purpose - for fishing the dam wall.

It actually uses the waves to dash the fly against the structure and remain as close as possible to the wall.

The natural red cock hackles are stiff enough to stop or greatly reduce snagging.
