September sees a weath of fly fishing with some of the summer heat having burned off and some great hatches of flies. water temperatures are back to normal fishing levels on smaller stillwaters so we are in for a great month of fly fishing.

 What England & Wales (Environment Agency Rules) Scotland

In September English & Scottish rivers sees hatches of  Dark Olives (LDO - Baetis rhodani), Iron Blues (Baetis muticus), Pale Wateries (Baetis fuscatus), Blue Winged Olives and other Ephemeroptera.

Lures for Lake & Reservoir Flies Recommended:

Pulling flies - Viva marabou, Cats Whisker, Humungus. Use Foam Arsed Blobs as suspenders for buzzers and allow to float, always a deadly technique

September Fly Fishing Tactics:

Allow your flies to drop into the feeding zone and then retrieve quickly to spark the trout's aggression. Jerked pulls usually work well rather than constant speeds
