Terrestrials can find a great deal of use during fly fishing, especially in the summer months, where large numbers of different beetles, hoopers, big bibios, dady long legs, caterpillars and ants are found on meadows and in the coastal vegetation surrounding the shores of rivers and lakes. These terrestrial animals often fall on the water surface, where they eat hungry trout and other kinds of river fish. This type of insects is therefore very nutritious and an important ingredient for fish during the hot spring days and throughout the summer season!
Fishing with dry imitation of terrestrial beetles, hoppers and big bibios is a really exciting experience! It would be a huge mistake to ignore this specific category of artificial fly! So be ready for unforgettable summer fishing with big dry flies!
