The world's best flyfishing site.


Bottom dwelling crustacean, from plankton sized to several centimeters. A favourite food of many fish species in fresh and saltwater. Often translucent. Best imitated with a weighted pattern bounced on the bottom, usual retrieve is a jerky hand twist or short, sharp strip to simulate it characteristic 'jumping' motion when evading a predator.
