It is easy to notice the mature damsels because of their size and so it is not right to say that fly fishers do not notice them. It is a common mistake to confuse dragon flies and damsels though most people can tell the difference. 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. The nature of these nymphs is that they are very gluttonous carnivores, and you can find them mostly in slow moving water and the water beds. 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. You should know the movement of they fly nymph if you want to fish the damsel. The way to go is getting 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.
The Fly Fishing Guide states that it is effective to still fish as the tugs are very minimal. Make sure the thrusts are not the same and time and make sure you get the right combination to entice the fish. Pause like an insect.
The adult damsel is the main debate. If an adult damsel is found in trout’s it is controversial than when it is in shallow waters. It is dependent on the food source availability, the activity of the damsel and where you are fishing from. Eggs are laid underwater by a damsel which will only resurface to lay again other times it will not according to the backcountryangler.
If damsels are near then it becomes a very rationale choice for a dry fly fisher.
It is not easy to set your calendar because they are spread out and prolific. 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. They mayfly caddis or the salmon fly hatches do not get attracted by the damsel fly and no vacations can be planned on the emergence of the damsel because it is vital in the diet of a trout. Possibly, if these imitations are fished there are a lot of fish which is produced by fast strong strikes.
