Black Gnat – Best Fly Fishing Flies

The Black Gnat is a great dark dry fly that can be used in a variety of situations. This fly imitates dark coloured midge hatches and can also be used in low light conditions, especially after sunset.

The Black Gnat is one of Fish The Fly‘s favourite dark coloured dry fly patterns, and this is a deadly pattern for stillwater Trout.

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.
