    Default Tubefly for resident brown trout

    Hi guys !

    Here in Europe, trout season is starting soon (in march).

    After my Salmon River trip, I have now a switch rod and I started to tie some tube flies

    But, before going back on the Salmon River and fishing for steelheads, I'd like to try these flies for brown trouts, in the rivers near my home (Spain and France)





    Any of you are fishing brown trouts with tubes ? how about my patterns, and any recommandations ?

    Thanks !

    I have not gotten into the tube fly thing yet but am so very close. I can see so many great advantages to it!

    Nice flies and thanks for pushing me a hair closer

    Nice tying Ben, haven't got the bug yet for those things.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Hi Ben,

    Take a look in the Spey sub forums here, I posted a pattern in the Flies For Spey Fishing threads called Sunray Shadow. These are of Norwegian origin and are simple to make. They are going to be my fly for this season, trout - salmon, everything. http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...ay-shadow.html

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Hey Ben,

    Great looking flies, I'm sure you will find yourself tight to some trout with those. Ard has tied some really, really nice flies and his suggestion is undoubtedly a great one.

    What I've learned about tying and fishing tubes is that streamers are where it's at when it comes to tubes, spey style flies being a close second. The good news is you can pretty much adapt anything you tie on a shank to a tube. Let your creativity take hold and stick with the colors that work and you'll likely be landing fish. It's pretty clear to me that I think you have the idea based on your ties. Well done.

    Sure Jaybo.

    We have also some sea run brown trout in june, and few atlantic salmons (but I don't want to target it, according to me it's a waste of time here in France but maybe I'm wrong !)

    So, I'll target brown trouts, with natural colors flies (olive, brown , white and black) with very few flash.

    Just want to try minnow patterns with angel hair when the water is hight and dirty.

    You need to perform some actions with extreme level of caution for fishing. For example, you can not switch back once you switched on to this.
