Black Gnat Wet Fly
The Black Gnat Wet Fly pattern is a true and tried longtime favorite fly that remains very effective today. The term “Black Gnat” is used my many anglers to describe a number of flat winged flies that fall or get blown on the water. Trout are particularly attracted to them.
It is particular effective when fished on a middle dropper as part of a team of three flies, tying a heavier fly as the point fly to ease casting and letting the flies dead drift over the location where trout may be lying in wait.
Usually available in hook sizes: 8 | 10 | 12 | 14 | 16 | 18
