Imitates an adult waterboatman. Waterboatmen feed on submerged plants in shallow stillwaters. Although they spend most of their time underwater, they come to the surface to breath. The frequency of their breathing can be anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. After getting a gulp of air, they descend, often trailing a string of bubbles behind them. Hence the long, trailing strand of Accent Flash in the fly pattern. Waterboatmen propell themselves by kicking their legs, which are imitated here by the rubber strands. The insect is of most interest to trout in the fall.
How to Fish
Use a floating line and (optionally) an indicator. Cast into water 3-4 feet deep and let the fly settle to near the bottom. Then use a twitching lift-and-settle retrieve.
