Greenwells Glory

This fly was created by Canon Greenwell in 1860. It is still as popular today as it ever was. This fly has stood the test of time for a very good reason; it works and it works well! This is a fly no river trout angler should be without.

Large Dark Olive

The Large Dark Olive (L.D.O.) is one of the first flies to hatch on the river in spring. Often you can get L.D.O.s hatching on the opening day of the new season if the weather is mild enough. Other times it can be as late as April before they start hatching. Weather conditions will dictate when they start hatching. It is the most important fly for the dry fly angler for the months of March and April and again in September. A must have fly for any dry fly angler in Ireland or the UK.

Greenwells Glory

If you asked Irish River trout fly anglers what their most successful wet fly is most of them will tell you it’s the Greenwells Glory and for good reason; it imitates all the Olive species and will work well all season long.
