About the Dancing Damsel Trout Flies Fly

The Dancing Damsel should ideally be fished on a Floating Line with a leader of about 3 m (10 ft) or more. After the fly has sunk to the required depth, the retrieve should be in short pulls of about half a metre (2 ft), with some light twitches inbetween. This will activate the tail section, adding lifelike realism.

This fly is one of the most prodigious killers in modern fishing.
