Dobsonfly Creeper trout fly


The Dobsonfly Creeper trout fly is an imitation of the larva of the dobsonfly.

In spring the dobsonfly larva crawl out of the water and under bank-side rocks so they can pupate.  With spring rain, water levels rise and many of the creepers are washed out from under the rocks where the trout are waiting for them.

Type Nymph

Fish deep and allow a natural drift so that the fly bounces along the stony river bed.
