The Black Pennell, a wet hackled fly, was ingeniously crafted by H Cholmondeley Pennell, its Victorian creator. This fly pattern offers a level of flexibility and adaptability that may have been beyond its creator's imagination, making it a highly versatile addition to any fly box.

Tied bushy, the Black Pennell serves as an excellent dapping fly, while its smallest version can successfully mimic midges. As a top dropper, it effectively imitates various natural flies, demonstrating its adaptability in different fishing situations. In larger sizes, the Black Pennell is best fished as a sunk lure, appealing to a wide range of fish species.

This specific version of the Black Pennell shines when used as a wet fly during times when buzzers are making their way to the surface. Choosing the right method or pattern to use with this fly involves keen observation and understanding of the surrounding environment.

In conclusion, the Black Pennell is a highly adaptable and versatile fly pattern that caters to a variety of fishing scenarios. Its flexibility, combined with its effectiveness in imitating natural insects, makes it a fantastic addition to any angler's fly collection.
