Pale Watery Wet Fly

This pattern works well to imitate pale wateries, spurwings and pale coloured olives. Mostly useful in April, May, June and July. It will take trout feeding on the above mentioned flies that are emerging or are returning to the water to lay their eggs.

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.

Pheasant Tail Dry Fly

A great pattern for fishing in the evening time when the trout are feeding on olives or other upwinged flies. In the evening sun all flies have a reddish hue from the weak evening sun and this fly will represent the majority of upwinged duns or spinners.
