Re: Zander (EU Walleye) on the fly!

Some of the English reservoirs have them in good numbers now and apparently they can be really good sport on the fly. Yet to try it myself, cant seem to drag myself away from the rivers these days.

Re: Small Trout Religion?

I enjoy all aspects of fishing but the pic above sums up the cut off for me. If a stream is mainly a nursery area and full of par in my opinion they should be left alone to grow and mature.

Re: Mayfly Drake Fly Swap

If you dont mind an English applicant I will be up for this, will tie a danica pattern that I am guessing will work for the green drakes as well.

Re: Need help from troutmen

I have had similar experiences with ultra picky trout and have found more often than not the fly is not the problem. If they are feeding small I would be confident of catching them on a size 20-26...

Re: Cut Throat Trout Pics

Re: Cut Throat Trout Pics

I apologise in advance for my ignorance but as far as I am aware we don't have cut throat in the UK (very few wild rainbows as well). Are they a distinct species or a variation of a rainbow trout?
