The ‘Little Devil’ is one of many effective all year round nymphs. Its translation to Welsh is the Daiwl Bach, familiar to all but a few fly fishermen and a fly that should be in everyone’s fly box. I have loads of them, various colours and sizes, and often throw out an attractive looking pattern of daiwl bach nymphs. My favourite is a red daiwl back, suitable I think for a little devil fly and it has a very aesthetically pleasing look about it in the water.

Simple fishing tricks can often work when you are using live bait and want to catch any kind of trout, no matter the size. However, if you are purely after big trout and lunkers, then you need to be willing to switch things up, take chances, and catch less fish in the end.
