There are more species of insects in the world than all the animals, and, of all insects, beetles make up about 40%, hence, beetles are extremely abundant. It is a therefore a common occurrence for trout to encounter beetles and it is no surprise to regularly find beetles in trout stomach contents. Trout seem to love beetles and the 'Red Tag' is the quintessential beetle artificial fly. Be that as it may, 'Red Tags' are often taken when no beetles are in the fish gut, proving the attractiveness of the fly to trout. In Tasmania the right sized 'Red Tag' is an extremely versatile fly, it can be fished with confidence in many situations. 'Red Tags' can also be fished as a Wet fly with equally surprisingly good results.
