Muddler Daddy

As we come into late summer the daddy longlegs moves to the top of the trout's menu. This muddler head version is ideal for pulling through the waves windier days when plenty of daddies will be getting blown on to the water. Fish it with a sunk or wet daddy on the middle dropper or point for those fish that are targeting drowned daddies.

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.
