Fly fishing with wet flies for trout and grayling
- choosing the right fly pattern

wet fly fishing for trout
 
 
 

Trout flies - wet flies for rivers, stillwaters, lakes, lochs and loughs!

Wet fly fishing for trout and grayling in the traditional manner, casting the wet fly down and across the river and letting it swing is how many anglers start fly fishing, because of that the technique is often thought simple. However to be a very good wet fly angler is difficult. Upstream fishing with a team of three spiders teaches you a lot about the fish and how subtle they can take a fly. Experience brings a sixth sense, you don't know why you tightened but you did and the fish was there. Loch flies are also represented below, traditional patterns, buzzers, damsel, dabbler, claret bumble, bibio, kingfisher butcher, and daddy long legs. They are mainly for use in lakes and stillwaters. The version of the wickhams fancy, pearl stoats tail, teal and silver and of course Ally's Fancy are really sea trout patterns for sea run brown trout.
