Since A Treatise of Fysshynge with an Angle in 1496 by Dame Juliana Berners we have been writing about the hunting fish through fly fishing techniques. Trout fly fishing particularly grew dramatically with the Victorians and through the 1800's when Trout were transferred as ova to British Colonies with the first successful transfer of Brown Trout Ova aboard the Norfolk with Itchen and Wye trout introduced to Victoria, Australia
Trout fly fishing has ranged from stunning waters like the English Chalk Streams and the Catskills to lochs and rivers where natural Brown Trout occur to stocked lakes like Arnfield, Grafham or Roxholme. Whatever your preference there is a massive offering for trout fly fishing world-wide.

The Brown Trout inhabits rivers, lakes, lochs and reservoirs. It was originally a European species of salmonid fish which is found in freshwater. The Brown Trout, Salmon trutta morpha fario and Salmo trutta morpha lacustris are known as the sea trout which migrates to saltwater and only returns to fresh water to breed.

We the weather improving through March early indications for trout fly fishing are that temperatures should be around 10C and not mad winds like we have had through January and February. There are still superb Trout to be had, Stillwaters are producing stunning Brown & Rainbow Trout and rivers will be opening for Trout mostly on 22nd March. (check local byelaws from the Environment Agency for your rivers).
