Our fly of the month for January.
Cockroach Black. This strange fly is a great substitute for the Australian Cicada you hear churring in the trees along the rivers and in your backyard.
We have been fish this fly through December and January with great success, catching the bigger fish. It's a bit of a monster as flies go only coming in hook sizes 6 and 8 and therefore too big a mouthful for small fish. We have seen smaller fish come up and mouth it but of course it won't fit their small mouths.
Cockroach Black big and ugly but a fish catcher during the summer.
