Understandably, river anglers will have their fingers crossed and be praying for decent conditions come the brown trout season on rivers. Chances are however there’s likely to be a deluge beforehand, rendering rivers out of sorts for dry fly fishing. With caddis larvae busy developing over the winter months the opening weeks of the season see many of these sheltering in their cases beneath stones and the likes.

Beadhead Straggle Tadpole Come spring, we’ll all be praying for mild conditions and hatching buzzers, yet the truth is we’re often subjected to chilly winds that send temperatures crashing. Often now, we have to adopt search tactics to cover more ground and hopefully, find the trout!

With winter beginning to release her icy grip, March sees fly life wake up on stillwaters. Blessed with reasonable temperatures upwards of 7oC we can expect to see dark buzzers emerging with dark brown and black being dominate colours. During more inhospitable conditions, trout are likely to be grubbing about in search of shrimp (gammarus) or cased caddis.
