Trout Flies For Every Occassion

Whatever your trout fishing preference here you will find a deadly range of fly at stunning value backed by our best value for money and quality service. No matter whether you are a G E M Skues fan loving wet flies or one of the dry flies purists who fished on chalk streams from March to October (depending on local byelaws).  As ardent follower in the footsteps of F M Halford and you are a dry purist , or alternatively you may fish for Rainbows on lakes all year, it is our pleasure to help you get the most out of your fishing. Find our more in our blog A History of Fly Fishing

Choosing Trout Flies For Rainbows

Rainbow Trout fishing fly patterns can be vibrant to stimulate the aggression in these fish - often the flies can be bright and vibrant like a blob flies which do not imitate anything in nature.  Alternatively they can be buzzers that match the natural midge pupae emerging to the surface. When we design a flies for Rainbows we are working on the basis that the fish is so aggressive that it could hit the pattern either because it is bright and vibrant or it matches natural foods found in the Rainbow Trout's lake or river habitat.

Selecting The Best Fly For Brown Trout

Typically trout flies for Brown Trout are different those for Rainbows. This trout is much more selective over the fly as Brown Trout generally seek the naturals like imitative small fish patterns or Pheasant Tail Nymphs which look like Baetis nymphs (early stage of river and lake olives). Alternatively we can use suggestive patterns. A Fly for Brown Trout that is suggestive could be a Gold Ribbed Hares Ear which does not match anything under the water but looks 'buggy', it looks like the typical grubs and nymphs found under the water. See out article on Brownie patterns for more details

Which Pattern Should I Use?

We are often asked by fisherman for the best flies for trout but the fly will vary by season, day, weather and venue. We produce hatch charts monthly for you to look at what fishing fly will match the hatch and recommend fly from our expert knowledge.  However if you are a beginner looking for help, going to a specific venue or special fishing trip, feel free to contact us and talk to our team of experts who will be happy to advise you personally and assist in your flies selection.
