About the Diawl Bach Trout Fly

The Diawl Bach is a very effective modern classic pattern, that has very quickly become a standard in stillwater flyboxes.

This simple dressing is a killer that can be fished on any line, from floating to fast sinker and at most depths.

Choose unweighted or lightly weighted nymphs for shallow or slow moving water. Medium weighted nymphs for slightly deeper or faster moving water, and your heaviest nymphs when you are dredging deep pools or have high and fast water conditions.

Diawl Bach loosely translated means "Little Devil".
