Dave’s Cricket is the go-to fishing fly for imitating the common cricket found all over the country. When you get down the river to fish on a summer afternoon, you’ll often hear these crickets before you see one. It can be hard to match the correct size of these bugs so try out a few different options. Twitching these flies a bit in the water during your drift can help to draw bites from trout. They are especially productive in meadow streams and creeks during the summer. Instead of just listening to the crickets while you fish, imitate them and you might just have a new favorite fly pattern.
