Damsel flies are noticed by fly fishers because they are easy to notice especially the mature ones. Despite the fact that many people can tell the difference between damsels and dragon you will still find some people confusing the two. They should be able to notice due to their colors, their small size and the fact that they are common. Damsels can lie flat due to the ability by their wings to do so. Adult damsels have different colors which are tan, olive and blue but you can a male damsel as it has more colors. Found mostly in water beds and in places where the water is moving slowly this is where you will find these greedy carnivorous known as damsel nymphs. The presence of damsel nymphs is well in lakes but the rivers appreciate them too due to their size, heartiness and numbers.
Mostly these happens on lakes when fast water currents fail to separate them and it is a good time to fish in most shores. Now if you want to fish the flying damsel nymph you should pass on the similar fly movement. The name of the game is get the waggle.
The backcountryangler Montana where the damsels nymphs are tied with marabous tremendously help and with a hand twist take slowly to attract a greedy damsel or two. It is easy to do so because most of them would be migrating to from a young age to a trout where they are known to swim slowly and sometimes are even motionless.
According to the Fly Fishing Guide there is very little tugging if you still fish that is why it is effective. The variation in the thrusts, duration will achieve a good combination to attract the fish. Pause like an insect.
The core debate is the adult damsel. There is no doubt it is found in the shallow waters but if it is found in trout that is a dispute. It is dependent on the food source availability, the activity of the damsel and where you are fishing from. It is not guaranteed as it seen by the backcountryangler that the damsel will emerge to lay its eggs which it does underwater.
For a dry fly fisher when the damsels are always near which makes it a reasonable choice.
Due to the prolific and spread out season for the damsels it is hard to set your calendar. The emergence occurs in the spring and summer.
Finally, fly fishers often over look a damsel fly and yet it is a cyclic staple for many foraging trout waters. There is no connection of the damsel fly and the mayfly caddis or salmon fly hatches therefore it may not be possible to the damsel because it looks like some very good meal. It is possible that if there is fishing for these replica fish that is achieved using fast sturdy hits.
