There are dozens of damsel nymph patterns on the market. Many sport eyes, feelers, legs and gills. While trout don't care for the mimicry of detail, they always fall for the illusion of life. This deceptively simple pattern undulates and breathes as it swims. When the deservedly famous Davis Lake damsel nymph migration takes place, I'll dedicate an entire fly box to Randall's marabou damsel.
