Where To Use?
The Black Gnat is a good dry fly to use in Summer, especially during hatches of flying ants in the evenings, or before a thunder storm. It is an effective fly as it can even imitate a house fly or a flying ant. The Black Gnat can also be used to imitate darker mayflies and can be used during the heat of the day when there is no apparent activity on the water’s surface. The Black Gnat has the strange ability to bring the curiosity out in fish, especially Trout.
