About the Casual Dress Trout Fly

This fly was made up during a bad drought. Our dam was down about ten metres, and had been so for about a year. I had made a casual dress with a flash back of pearl, and discovered that when I fished it on or in the bottom weed, I was getting good takes.

It is best used on a fast sink line.

This fly is based on the classic Casual Dress US pattern, made in the 60's by Polly Rosborough.
