The Grunter is a bit of a beast of a dry fly. This is a great fly to use for early season Brown Trout on the river or when fishing a sedge hatch during the summer on the Stillwaters around the UK. It also works great as a dry fly when used in "heavy water" when smaller more subtle patterns won't stand out. It is a fairly unconventional fly but is definitely worth having in both your river and Stillwater box.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
