The five free flies for this friday are Griffiths Gnats
- Hook: Size 20 Partridge TDH (de-barbed)
- Tail & Hackle: Metz grizzle cock
- Body: Peacock Hearl
- Thread: Brown Cobweb
This fly is a must have for when the trout ignore everything other than those damn midges! I’ve heard that the Griffiths Gnat can represent a single fly, or Midges in a mating ball.
I’ve found trimming the hackle off the bottom of the fly helps in two areas – firstly it allows the fly to sit a little lower in the waters surface and secondly it aids the hook up of the fish by not having the small hook masked by hackles.
