To acompany our Hatch Chart we have compiled a collection of 17 Wet flies which should be perfect for fishing Stillwaters in March & April around the United Kingdom.
Matching the hatch is crucial to a successful days fishing, so most days start with one question 'Which fly should I use?' For many anglers this is answered either by experience or guesswork often based on what has worked previously or something you heard from another angler that worked for them.
Pond & Lakes Olive may as well be treated as a single species, the only difference being (apart from the name) where they inhabit, and the fact that Lake Olives will appear a moth before Pond Olives. Both species are found throughout the UK, they prefer watm, sheltered slightly alkaline waters. These are most prolific in the Southern half of England and in Irish Limestone Loughs.
Corixa the generic name for approx 30 species of 'lesser water boatmen' found around the UK. Abundant in most British stillwaters, however they prefer water no more than 2m deep because they need to surface from time to time
Freshwater Snails are very oxygen sensitive , in warmer weather they will often float up in larger numbers and can stay there for several days or weeks, until they need to feed again. Trout love to feed on the floating snails enthusiasticly, often to the exclusion of everything else.
Shrimp & Louse The most common of the creatures that Trout will eat, found throughout Rivers & Stillwaters across the UK. Most commonly found in and around weedbeds and in the gravel. Best to have your fly weighted and fish in shallower waters.
Alder widespread throught the UK and appear in large numbers in Spring & early Summer. Alder Larva are about 2cm long and what fish will take, they arely take the Adult Alder, and if they do so it is believed that they have bene mistaken for a Hawthorn which are similar size and shape and hatch the same time of year. Alder Larva live in water approx 10 foot deep and are nocturnal, so fish these slowly as close to the bottom as possible.
