Dapping is proclaimed as the simplest and most exciting way to fly-fish so what is fly dapping? Dapping with a blowline and Dapping flies is a traditional fly-fishing practice and is extremely popular in Ireland and Scotland. Touch the fly up and down on the surface of the water and use a blowline to carry the fly to the fish without a visible leader or line.
It really is superb fun to "dap" flies on the water surface as it can stimulate superb bites ranging from gentle sips from trout sub-surface to the dapped fly being hammered as a greedy trout hits the fly. Because bites can be quite ferocious use a of flexible rod with lots of action is sensible allowing the blowline and the rod to take the slack of the bite.
