The Ray Bergman Collection – 26) Black Gnat

Ray Bergman Collection — By on October 4, 2010 7:31 pm

Tip: Silver tinsel (optional) **
Tail: None
Ribbing: None
Body: Black chenille
Hackle: Black
Wing: Dark slate

** Bergman’s recipe does not list silver tinsel as an optional tip. The tinsel tip can be found in other dressings; I prefer adding it to the Black Gnat for added attractiveness.
* The Black Gnat dry fly is on Trout Plate No. 14.

    Hi Ruzzman;
    Thank you for your comment! I appreciate your kind words and I’m glad you like this fly. It is a very old pattern, dating well back into the 1800’s. Fish like black!
