It is indeed.  Great to watch.

I've seen trout take mayfly and sedges like that, but never damsels.  They do get obsessed though, so once they've done one they repeat.  I like th bulge that appears just befor ethe fish emerges to engulf them.  I've had a dry damsel in my fly box for years but never tied it on.  If I was there - I most definitely would!  It wouldn't be a question of 'what are they taking today'?

Chris, have you ever been a fluff chucker?
