About the Summer Yellow Daddy Trout Fly

I first tied this fly for Grafton Water in the early 1990s where these small yellow daddies hatch and finish up on the water in good numbers during June and July. Naturally this dry fly works best at Grafton, but I have also had good success at Rutland Water. I took fourteen rainbows on it during the 1994 Benson & Hedges match. Do not confuse this pattern with the similar Yellow Hopper.

Expert Tip:

Fish this as a single fly lightly ginked to ensure it rides high on the surface.

Creator of this trout fly: Chris Guthrie

Tier of this trout fly: Chris Guthrie

Country of origin for this trout fly: England

This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Still Water
