Damsels in Distress

The poor bugs....

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to mimic a damsel adult that is hovering above the surface... you'd need some kind'a helicopter pattern to pull it off :D

Fortunately, I know of only two fisheries where I've seen the trout take flying damsels. During a hatch such as that shown, an emerging damselfly pattern usually works.

So the guys just shot the film and didn't bother to fish????

Damselfly quad-rotor micro-drones...that's the ticket!

And I would be standing there with my dripping caddis, frantically looking through my fly box for something that even looked like a damsel fly.

Great video. Thanks for sharing.
