This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Black Gnat dry fly.
I had an earlier Black Gnat wet fly as a TBT fly, but Dancing Trout found this fly along the river and it’s been in her fly fishing pack for a while. It looked like a good candidate for today’s TBT post.
To be honest, I don’t know the history of the fly. I’ve seen them tied with black tails as well as red tails. Perhaps one of my readers can provide a little insight for the fly.
So here is one of the fish I caught today after fishing for 8 hours today.
It’s the reason I didn’t come home and tie a different TBT fly today.
