The Claret Dabbler is one of the original and best of the Dabbler patterns. Originally tied with floss, general preference is for a Dark Claret Seals Fur body, as in our example. The fly is thought to imitate a hatching sedge, although it is often fished prior to a hatch of Mayfly on the Loughs as a Mayfly Nymph imitator. In addition to these representations, the fly has also been responsible for catching fish which have been gorging on Cased Caddis over muddy bottoms in Lough Corrib and Mask. It is equally effective in smaller sizes for Sea Trout and will take Salmon on the Loughs also.
