The Washing Line is a fantastic stillwater rig and will catch Trout in stillwaters when many other options fail. The team of flies use the buoyancy of a booby to lift the remaining nymphs above the lake bed or loch. This is ideal when buzzers on droppers when other tactics are not working. In a reverse to normal Trout tactics / rigs the point fly is a booby, buoyant lifting the rig in the air. The heaviest fly is set at the other end of the rig. The effect is that when using an Intermediate or , Slow Sinking or Sinking line that they angle down in the water, off the horizontal leader, just like clothing hanging down from a washing line. Teams of buzzers on the point are good nymph imitators such as Gold Ribbed Hares Ears or Pheasant Tail Nymphs or Diawl Bach on each dropper. Depending on the type of line used (Intermediate / Sinking) this rig can simulate buzzers that are nearing the surface just before they reach the top and emerge into adults.

When on lakes and normal anglers are fishing deep with three buzzers on droppers tied to a long leader try this rig, it can account for a much greater catch, even when it is too early for a hatch nymphs may be getting ready for the hatch and moving up through the water. This is when the 'washing line rig' is deadly.

Classic Collection
Thursday, 26 June 2014  | 

The card and foam fixing was good quality and with the plastic cover the flies came in good order.
The fly selection is pretty much a classic selection which for the beginner especially should give you a good range of permutations to use on a usual trip to a typical large stillwater. I bought this with the Washing Line Rig 2 to cover all options as I have not used this method before. I am pleased with the selections overall.
The quality of the flies in all but one case were very good and having shown these to some friends we are all in agreement. My only fault was a polystyrene head on one booby had only poly eye, the other had not been formed properly and so should not have been typed as it is easily seen. Still I won't grumble as the the quality of all the others is such that these 2 cards are still very good value for money. The real test comes with the fishing this weekend. If they catch that will be the ideal result!
