Weighted River Flies



 
WEIGHTED NYMPHS & LARVA
 
These can obviously be used on stillwaters as well! How many times when faced with a fast run or an awkward side eddy do you find your flies skating out of control, try these in these circumstances. Stick one on the point and spiders on droppers, or try two on a point and dropper team to combat awkward currents. Also handy in crosswinds on lochs. Use as a single fly and cast to nymphing fish as well.

YouTube - Nymphing in Sweden


I found this short film of Tim Sawyer (son of Frank) fishing in Sweden and thought it interesting.
Lots of tips on how to catch nymphing fish in clear water. The key fact about the flies is that the Pheasant Tail and Swedish Nymph are one weight while the Killer Bug is heavier. I go one further with a Goldbead Killer Bug that has lead as well!
If the Pheasant Tail doesn't reach the feeding fish try the Killer Bugs.

2011 GRHE14
LEADED GOLD RIBBED HARE'S EAR NYMPH
 
Very simple tying but none the worse for that. Once this fly is wet it comes alive lots of straggle and soft under fur used in the tying that only gets beeter when well chewed by the fish. The larger patterns are heavier as they carry more lead.
