Best flies

In winter fish are generally caught on lures or static buzzers yet on warmer days dry flies can be successful. Using the best fly fishing tackle and winter flies are cat’s whisker, humongous, yellow dancer, bloodworm and black buzzer.

Spring is normally the best time for fly fishing when hatches of hawthorn fly and midge have fish feeding from dawn till dusk. The best spring flies are dry hawthorn, black Klink hammer, hares ear nymph and pheasant tailed nymph.

Summer is weather dependant, mornings and evenings are generally best. Dry’s, Cdc’s and small buzzers down as small as 18’s do well and in the evening sedges.

Then in autumn; daddies fish well into October. Buzzers of various colours and small lures start to catch fish.
