One of the most popular trout lake and reservoir lures in the UK and Europe. The damselfly nymph comes into its own in summer months when main feeding occurs. Try the edges of weed beds for trout patrolling close in for this food.
In summer months when the mass migration of Damselfly nymphs occurs, use a floating line and long leader with a slow figure of eight retrieve or a series of short twitches. The rest of the year can produce using an intermediate or sinking line with a varied rate of retrieve.
