Trout, Sunfish, Bass
The Dyret is a pattern that comes to us from Gunnar Bingen of Norway. Translated to English, Dyret means “Beast” or “Animal”. Because it floats so well, I’ve also heard this fly referred to as the Fast Water Caddis. This fly, while intended for trout and grayling, also works well in our waters for bass and sunfish. It can be fished with a slow retrieve, skated quickly, or with a dead drift. Try pitching it near the bank or under the shade of a tree. A touch of dry fly floatant will keep this fly buoyant for a long time.
