J:son Wasp- Black/Yellow. Size: 16 mm/approx. 5/8 inches. Hook size #10
Many terrestrials are often found close to the water. Among these you will find craneflies, ants, bumblebees, wasps and bees. All of these will occasionally end up on the surface of the water and become the target for hungry fish, such as grayling, char, rainbow trout and brown trout.
Bees, wasps and bumblebees are very similar to each other so one fly can imitate them all. Just as with ants, they appear during the first warm days of spring and disappear as it gets cold during late autumn/early winter. You can find them on the surface during this period, but the peak time is during the fall. As the first frost appears and summer disappears, they will get sluggish and appear to be drunk. During these conditions, it is not unusual to find many on the water. Try one!
