Damselflies and Dragonflies

June 26, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

George Rowe offers excellent insight into the lifecycles of the damselfly and dragonfly and how best to their imitations to catch bass and bluegill. Mr. Rowe points out that “Dragonflies and damselflies are very similar insects and difficult to tell apart, except when they are at rest. When they are still, the difference is obvious – the dragonfly has its wings held horizontally while the damselfly folds its wings vertically.” In the Petosky (Michigan) News-Review.
