Upright Damsel  

Damselfly nymphs are important trout food in many lakes during summer. The Upright Damsel has a realistically slender translucent-olive abdomen and is designed to emulate the natural in the water.  It hovers, remaining upright, when it is not retrieved.

 
 



Fishing Tip: 
Prospect lake weedbeds with a floating or intermediate line or use the upright damsel to target sited fish. Either cast it ahead of cruising fish or allow the fly to rest on the bottom and twitch when a fish approaches. Damselfly nymphs tend to swim with five seconds bursts of wiggles punctuated by pauses.
