The Grunter has a somewhat unconventional design and is a rather strange looking dry fly, however it is absolutely lethal when used in certain situations. In particular this is a great fly to use in March when searching out early season Brown Trout on the river or when fishing a sedge hatch during the summer on the lochs and lakes around the UK. It also works great as a dry fly when used in “rougher water” when smaller more subtle patterns won’t stand out.
