Coch-y-Bondhu trout fly


The Coch-y-Bondhu trout fly is a popular old favourite and a great summer time dry fly. It was developed in Wales. The original or correct (though seldom used) spelling is Coch a Bonddu.

It is very effective as a beetle or in a smaller size, a blowfly imitation. Also useful during a summer evening rise when it can attract trout when other patterns have failed as it seems to appeal regardless of what they fish are feeding on. Can also work as an indicator fly though its dark colour and lack of visible wings can make it difficult to spot at times.
