Tied up a few new bumbles to try on Lough Corrib this March. The bumble is a great top dropper fly in a wave.
For these flies I have decided to use black, claret and reds. A few trigger points with fluorescent tags, holographic tails and jungle cock cheeks will hopefully draw the fish.
The most likely fly to hatch in late March is the duckfly (a black midge) so these bumbles are tied on standard wet fly hooks in size 12 and 14. You don’t have to tie all your bumbles really bushy. You can tie some a little sparser for calmer conditions
Looking forward to giving some of these a try.
