Fine Wire Flies

 

Fine Wire Wild Brown Trout Flies

The flies on this page are tied on top quality fine wire hooks. If you are fishing for wild fish that in the main weigh less than 1lb these flies are the ones to buy. They are much stronger than you would think and can be used for larger fish as long as you are careful! (light lines and soft rods are the key to playing large fish on light tackle)

 

Two patterns to try when the fish are not rising.

 

Goldbead Damsel

This is a mini lure as well as a Damsel Nymph imitation. Watch for takes on the drop.
