When damsel nymphs are migrating to hatch, this fly can be used on its own as an imitative pattern with a bit of fancy “look at me!” going on. The Wendouree Damsel also works well as an anchoring point fly with a team of traditional wet flies, soft hackles or nymphs. Or it can be used as a middle fly in a team of larger pulling flies.
