The Georgi Damsel | Damselfly Nymph Fly …

If you remember the Logan lake fly shop then you’ll probably remember Georgi Abbot. She and her husband ran the fly shop for years and when there was fishing to do it was usually at one of the many lakes in that area. Word is that Georgi developed this damselfly pattern most specifically for Tunkwa lake where it performed spectacularly – even when trolled through the thick “pea soup” algae bloom of mid summer!
