Floating Dragonfly Nymph

€1.19

New for 2024, introducing the Floating Dragonfly Nymph – a revolutionary addition to the fly fishing world from ReelFlies. This innovative fly is meticulously designed to replicate the nymph stage of a dragonfly, an essential prey item for many freshwater fish species. Its floating design sets it apart, allowing it to skim just below the water's surface, mimicking the natural behaviour of a dragonfly nymph preparing to emerge, or fished on a full sink line with a short leader mimicking the Dragonfly scurrying across rock and sunken debris.

Crafted with attention to detail, this fly features a lifelike body, realistic foam eyes, and subtle colour variations, capturing the essence of a real dragonfly nymph. The use of buoyant materials ensures that it maintains the perfect position in the water, making it irresistible to fish.

How to Fish with the Floating Dragonfly Nymph:

  1. Ideal Conditions: Best used in calm or slightly rippled waters where dragonfly nymphs are naturally found. This fly is particularly effective in late spring through summer when dragonflies are most active.

  2. Casting Technique: Use a delicate, accurate cast to place the nymph near structures like reeds, lilies, or over submerged logs with full sink line where fish might be lurking.

  3. Retrieval Method: Employ a slow, steady retrieve to mimic the movement of a real nymph. Occasional pauses and slight twitches can add to the realism, suggesting a nymph struggling to reach the surface.

  4. Depth Control: The floating design allows for control over depth. You can let it drift near the surface or add a split shot for fishing at slightly deeper levels where fish might be feeding or use an intermediate-full sink line fished like a Booby fly.

  5. Weather and Time of Day: Overcast days can be particularly productive, as lower light conditions often stimulate fish activity. Early mornings or late evenings, when dragonflies are most active, are ideal times to use this fly.

The 2024 Floating Dragonfly Nymph is a game-changer for fly fishers seeking a more nuanced and realistic approach. Its unique floating design and life-like appearance make it a must-have in any angler's fly box. Equip yourself with this advanced fly and experience the thrill of enticing fish in the most natural and effective way.
