GRAYLING FLIES

Key patterns to try on any river or stream. All of these will tempt trout as well but grayling do have a soft spot for red and pink  so plenty of hot spots in evidence. Fish in teams of two or three or as single flies, some strike indicator patterns included and foam indicators as well.
 
 
 
DRYFLIES  -  Wet Spiders and Weighted patterns down the page
 
Two styles tied,  fast water and slow glide patterns. A general rule - the larger patterns are best in fast water with smaller tyings for pools and glides.
 
 
 
 
FAST WATER

GOLDBEAD SPIDERS
 
Useful on the point to anchor the cast, the added weight slow down the drift of a two/three fly team of flies especially in faster water or in a blow.

'Strike' Spiny
Tied with a small nylon loop at the tail end so you can tie on a tippet and fish an spider or weighted nymph. The larger sizes are better for heavier patterns, Gink and they will float high in the water. This rig is neater than the New Zealand team or Duo.
