The Drake is perhaps one of the most beloved trout flies in the world. People love it because it works. Cast with a dead drift on a thin leader and it’s a winner. Green Drakes are the largest species of mayfly so feel free to choose a larger size than most. Typically, the bigger the dry fly, the more fun it is to fish. This is a fantastic trout fly in the summertime when Green Drakes are buzzing around.
