About the Green Beetle Trout Fly
The Green Beetle is a good imitation of the natural that rides low in the water. These are common food sources for trout, especially when they inadvertently get blown into the water by a sudden breeze.
The beetle's body is made of foam for buoyancy, with peacock herl on the underside and sparse brown hackle.
Focus on fishing areas where beetle activity exists, such as along grassy banks and overhanging vegetation where they could naturally fall-in.
The fly can be fished with a twitching retrieve to mimic the erratic movement of a beetle trapped in the surface of the water.
