Black Gnat (NZ) Dry Fly
The Black Gnat is a great little fly, the New Zealand version is tied with a fluffy body to represent the fat blow flies that frequent our country side.
The Black Gnat is available in sizes #10 to #16 with sizes #12 - #16 working consistently well.
A popular pattern for fishing our still waters where it can be deadly. It's also a more natural pattern than some of the other blowfly patterns, so fools the fish better.
I've found the Black Gnat to be deadly on our grassy banked streams where there's a smaller grass fly which can be abundant in summer.
