Hackled fishing flies are meant to float on the water's surface, imitating all sorts of adult aquatic or terrestrial insects that fall into the water. The hackle fibres closely mirroring the imprint a real insect would create on the surface film, which causes distinct shapes which trout spot when looking up.
