Damselflies are common on many stillwaters. Immediately after hatching, these teneral adults are pale yellowish to tan to olive in color and rest on twigs and sticks along the banks while their bodies and wings dry. Gusting winds can blow these delicate tenerals into the water, as their wings have yet to dry and provide flight.

An ancient group, damselflies have existed since at least the Lower Permianand are found on every continent except Antarctica.
There isn't any dialogue in this beautiful little film by Sharptail Media, as there isn't much to explain. Trout love adult damselflies, and sometimes don't even wait for them to hit the water. The Parachute Damsel Adult is an easy, accurate, and durable imitation.
Blessed with two sets of wings, adult damselflies possess an aerial deftness allowing them to capture other flying insects with ease. As nice as it is to watch winged damselfly, by far the more relevant stage for fly anglers is the aquatic nymph and long before the first electric blue male breaks free from the confines of his nymphal shuck, damselflies are constantly preyed upon by trout. From the egg stage, tiny nymphs hatch and grow throughout winter months developing into what is without question the most important stage to both trout and angler.
