BIG WETFLIES

These flies are tied on heavy wire size 8 hooks a little longer in the shank than a standard wetfly hook. They are useful on loch, river and in the estuary. Use as a single fly they can be cast at sea trout feeding in brackish water, on a windy day on a big loch fish on the point with wetfly/spiders on droppers, fish a single fly on an intermediate line to search slack water on a sea trout stream. No doubt there are other uses! A mix of traditional and modern patterns are included.


#8 ombudsman
OMBUDSMAN #8
 
This is an especially useful fly for winkling out larger brown trout on the loch. Looks like all manner of aquatic life from Dragonfly Nymphs to Water Beetles.

WEB TBS
TEAL, BLUE & SILVER HVY#8
 
All time favourite for sea trout on loch and river. Use this tying on the point with smaller spiders on droppers.
Always worth a cast as the light goes.

#8 black pennell
BLACK PENNELL #8
 
Tied with a tail that doesn't project too far past the bend of the hook, I am not over sure that coming short is because tails are too long  but it suits the style of this fly well. Age old black & silver combination essential on any wild trout and salmon water.

ROUGH FLAMETHROWER MUDDLER
FLAMETHROWER MUDDLER #8
 
Tied with a smaller head than some muddlers so the fly sits lower in the water than some tyings. It still creates a fair wake on retrieve that will bring salmon, sea or brown trout up. Fish the 'Hebridean Cast' this fly on the bob and a smaller Black Spider on the point, ideal for loch or river.

#8 black muddler
BLACK MUDDLER #8
 
Use this on the top dropper on loch or river for all gamefish. Tied with lots of hackle and deer to give the fly a good footprint on the water that brings fish up.

WEB HVY ELVER
THE NEW ELVER FLY #8
 
Try this on sand eel/elver feeding sea trout in saltwater lochs, tidal pools and anywhere else where you find feeding sea trout.
Works fished on the drop which is very handy if you are fishing in a kelp bed and retrieving is difficult or stripped. These are smaller than the other saltwater sea trout flies listed, some days the fish want large flies others smaller.

PETER ROSS #8
 
Another age old classic, certainly has the look of small fish about it and a proven record on many waters for many years.

C HVY8
MALLARD & CLARET #8

WEB PA COX
GRANDPA COX'S MINNOW FLY HVY#8
 
I found this tying in an old Trout and Salmon, it was tied ithe 1920's as a swiming minnow pattern. Looks far more alive in the water than model flies. Tied on a longshank hook in natural colours.
