Patterns For Trout Dry Flies

The trout dry fly is used floating on rivers & stillwaters. Fished on a tapered leader for good turnover and presentation it is one of the best forms of fly fishing. Watching the dry fly gently taken from the surface is one of the most exciting moments of our sport. We have one of the largest selections of micro dry flies available and don't forget to check our hatch charts available to registered users.

 

Dry flies (except cdc based flies) are typically greased using floatants such Gink to help them float. CDC (Cul De Canard) fly patterns have ultra fine barbules in the cdc that help trap air to make the flies float. Check our blog post on treating dry flies here.

The flies we are trying to imitate hatch at different times of year, Mayflies are synonymous with Duffers Fortnight (in June!) Large Dark Olives hatch all year but Caenis only hatches in July to September. We produce monthly hatch charts for registered users showing you what hatches are anticipated and what flies will "match the hatch".
