Egg Laying Sedge represent a consistent source of food for trout. They float a lot on river, swim in water to lay down their eggs and are hatching in a huge number. When you see these insects flying all over then you should switch on sedge flies.
Egg lying sedge is more vulnerable to fish. I strongly advice to use these kind of imitation instead one of a classic adult.
- Demmon D190 #12
- Thread: Uni 70 DEN
- Body made of spike dubbing in natural grey or rusty brown
- Ribbing made of Uni flat tinsel in gold
- Wing is made of CDC feathers 3-4 for fast flowing rivers and less for not so strong running ones
- Hot Spot : UV hot colored resin
- Hackle: Hare guard fur
What I like a lot at this fly is durability of hackle, non twisting on the leader during casting time and can be fished as a wet fly ( it imitates the swimming stage of the insect )
I often use dead drifting technique to induce the fish attack. It is a super fun to tie fly and efficient too
