Dave's Damsel - As Featured in the Trout Fisherman Mag

Regular price £2.00 Sale

This is the best damsel I have ever used, consisting of nearly all marabou it has loads of movement and life to it. It has caught me many fish and won many small Still-water competitions for me.

It has all the life and action needed to get those fish to have a look and when they do they nail it.

I used it in the Airflo Small Still-water's competition with my team mates Jeremy Lucas (Many times capped for England) and Robbie Bell another England Internationalist . I managed to land 59 fish that day with most of them on the damsel, the fishery owner’s comments were

”I have never seen anything like that before”

This fly is dynamite and catches fish all over, best fished with a Fig of Eight retrieve.


2016 Canada win the Commonwealth Championships with the help of his fly on their Still-water Sessions.


Top Fly Pattern, I would not be without it. I used it with good success at the Worlds in Vail Colorado 2016

Now available in new sizes and on Barbless Hooks
