About the Connemara Black Trout Fly

The Connemara Black, a wet winged pattern, is a timeless classic that has proven its effectiveness for generations of anglers. Originally developed in the loughs of Ireland, this pattern has become a staple fly for anglers fishing in stillwaters and rivers throughout the world. With its reputation for success, the Connemara Black is a must-have for any angler's fly box.

The Connemara Black is a simple, yet effective pattern that features a dark body made from black wool or dubbing. The wings are typically made from black feather fibres, which gives the fly its distinct appearance. This combination of dark body and wings creates a silhouette in the water that imitates a wide range of aquatic insects and other prey, making it an effective fly for targeting a variety of fish species.

Expert Tip:

This pattern is a popular choice for anglers fishing on Loch Earn, where it is highly effective for targeting brown trout and rainbow trout that are stocked in the lake.
