North country dry fly patterns designed around traditional yorkshire patterns for rainbow & brown trout. North Country and Clyde Style fly patterns are lightly dressed, traditionalists say 1.5 turns of hackle, key is a very lightly dressed body and hackles. These fly patterns are deadly.
Fishing With North Country Flies
With all dry fly fishing you are best using a floating flyline with a tapered leader for presentation. Because they are so lightly dressed you cannot allow any drag, this will take the fly under the surface film or drag the fly making it look unnatural to the fish. If the fly patterns drags then upstream mend, flicking the flyline upstream trying to leave the tapered leader on the surface of the water so that the flyline drag stops.
