Prairie Ocean Flies - The Griffith's Gnat
The batch of mosquito's are done so now I turn my attention to another favored small fly on Blue River - the Griffith's Gnat.
Again, this is a very simple tie but an extremely effective offering to the trout of Blue.
Although it's considered a dry fly, I've found myself to drown it at times fishing it more like a wet and having good results in the effort.
The size I'm currently tying is size 16, which for me, seems to be the perfect size in most cases. I can see where smaller sizes will prove very productive also.
