There are many natural flies covered by the generic term 'black gnat'. These are usually terrestrial flies of the Bibio species through some fly fishermen consider the water loving Emphid flies to be the only true Black Gnat. Regardless of preference this fly will be found in most fly fishermens fly boxes as it is deadly at times.
For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Black Gnat. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Black Gnat at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Black Gnat yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Black Gnat as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.Hook SizesDry Fly 12 to 16Silk ThreadBlackTailNone (but sometimes it is given a tail to aid its floatability)BodyBlack silkRibSilver wireHackleBlack cockWingStarling or grey duck
