About the Black Pennell Trout Fly
The Black Pennell fly in your flybox is more flexible than it's Victorian creator had probably imagined.
Tied bushy it’s a splendid dapping fly. The smallest version mimics the midges. It’s an effective top dropper imitating one of many natural flies.
The large sizes are best sunk and fished as a lure.
This particular tying of the Black Pennell is best used as a wet fly when the buzzers are toiling their way to the surface.
Observation, observation and observation will help you decide which method or pattern to use.
