About the Grey Gosling Trout Fly
The Grey Gosling is a type of wet fly pattern that is typically used in fly-fishing for trout and other freshwater fish species in Ireland's loughs (lakes). It's a classic Irish fly pattern that has been used for many years by anglers in Ireland's loughs.
The Grey Gosling is usually fished on a floating line, using a variety of retrieve methods, such as a slow figure-eight or a traditional wet fly swing. It's an effective pattern for catching both rainbow and brown trout, and other fish species that feed on aquatic insects.
