Trout Fly Fishing Tackle & Trout Flies

We love fishing for different species of trout ranging from cutthroat trout or brook trout to chalkstream brown trout, stocked reservoir, blue trout or stillwater rainbow trout. Different species and destinations demand different tackle and flies and you will find all you need from The Essential Fly. On a small brook you may be using a 3 weight trout rod with size 18 flies on a 1lb tapered leader, however on a large reservoirs you may be casting an 8 weight fly rod with ghost tip fly line or boat fishing using a competition drogue to stop your drift.

What is Fly Fishing?

Put simply this is the art of casting a little artificial trout fly using a weighted fly line, making it land gently on the water on or below the surface making it behave like a natural insect. It sounds easy however different flies are about at different times of the day and different flies on different months of the year. So indulging in the spot helps you become an amateur entomologist, helps you appreciate nature and puts you into some of the most amazing countryside.
