This Robert's Drake Dry Fly - 2 Pack is tied in a style reminiscent of Robert's Yellow Drake and the size selections offered give you the ability to cover different insect hatches with the same pattern. This parachute fly in the smaller size offerings can be used when the Sulphurs or Pale Evening Duns come off the water. The larger flies imitate brown drakes. The Robert's Drake is a classic and very popular dry fly pattern in Michigan and on the Au Sable and Manistee rivers – it can no doubt transfer well to similar waters with a medium, stable flow and occasional light riffles. If you fish where Sulphurs and pale-colored drakes abound, you would do well to make a presentation from this Robert's Drake Dry Fly - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, and others
- Mimics a variety of insect duns including brown drakes in the larger sizes and Sulphurs or Pale Evening Duns in the smaller sizes
- Technique: some favor the Robert's Drake Dry Fly for Sulphur hatches, which occur anywhere from mid-afternoon and into the dark; reach your spot by 3:00 and fish until near dark; Sulphurs can start in mid-May and run a month or more in cool weather areas or hatch all year round in warmer climates; when there are a lot of competing types of insects, the Robert's Drake can get overlooked as a Sulphur, so try switching up to the larger pattern
