Trout Fly Patterns


Choosing Rainbow Trout Flies

Flies for Rainbow Trout can be vibrant patterns to stimulate aggression - they can be bright and vibrant like a blob fly.  Alternatively they can be trout buzzers that match the natural midge pupae emerging to the surface. When we design a fly for Rainbows we are working on the basis that the fish is so aggressive that it could hit the fishing fly either because it is bright and vibrant or it matches natural foods found in the Rainbow Trout's lake or river habitat.

Selecting Brown Trout Flies

Brown Trout Fly fishing for Brown Trout is different to Rainbows. This trout is much more selective over the flies as Brown Trout generally seek the naturals like imitative small fish patterns or Pheasant Tail Nymphs which look like Baetis nymphs (early stage of river and lake olives). Alternatively we can use suggestive fly patterns. A Fly for Brown Trout that is suggestive could be a Gold Ribbed Hares Ear which does not match anything under the water but looks 'buggy', it looks like the typical grubs and nymphs found under the water. See out article on Brown trout flies for more details
