FLIES FOR WHEN TROUT ARE NOT RISING

THE FLIES ON THIS PAGE COST £1.20 TO £1.50 for three - 40p to 50p each

Trout and Grayling spend most of there time rooting through gravel and weedbeds looking for nymphs, larva, shrimp and the like, so no wonder the flies on this page are essential for any still or running water. All are weighted with lead wire,  or a goldbead and lead wire, which are that bit heavier, and can be used in teams of two or as a point fly with Spiders on droppers. Most are pretty drab patterns, the fish like them that way, some have added colour which can be useful in peat stained waters or in very fast water where the fish need some help to spot them
For super heavy patterns, look in the Czech Nymphs category.
