MICRO SALMON FLIES
During the warmer months smaller flies are often the answer to tempting fish (Salmon or Sea Trout). It is very easy to end up with a flybox full of medium size patterns, make sure you have large and small flies as well. Fish on light lines with fine leaders and fish these flies dead drift or very slowly, use floating lines and 12/15ft leaders, a clear intermediate with a short 8ft leader is a useful combo in windy weather
These #14 flies are always worth a cast when other flies fail. All small flies can be fished very slowly, a good tactic in calm water pools.
Very thin dressing of this classic fly.
