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.

Enjoy…go fish!
