Fly Fishing for Trout
We Fly Fish for Trout in rivers, small and large stillwaters. April to September is the river season, but stillwater trout fishing is available all year round. We match our fishing tactics to the seasons and imitate insects and small fish that are primary food sources for the trout at the time. This can vary during the day, when a hatch of aquatic flies can bring the trout to the surface looking for an easy meal. Spring to autumn brings the best dry fly fishing, and some of our waters hold the Mayfly, whose hatch in May to June, is often seen as the highlight of the season. In the winter, trout often feed on small fish fry, attacking the shoals and providing great sport on flies imitating escaping or injured fry. Successful fly fishing for trout requires understanding the natural environment in which they live, and ‘matching the hatch’ to select and present an appropriate fly. Fly fishing for trout can be ‘catch and take’ or ‘catch and release’ depending on the species and the fishery. Let us know if you have a preference and we can advise accordingly.
