Since the advent of catch and release regulations the fish have tended to become more selective over the years.

Not simply with respect to the pattern but more in terms of the presentation of the fly and its general appearance. Many of our most successful patterns are small, very sparse and delicate creations. All of the flies we fish with and supply to our clients are tied by us to our own designs, although of course they follow many of the trends in fly tying throughout the world.

Early in the season larger and somewhat more robust flies will frequently do the trick but as the season progresses more and more frequently we find ourselves fishing with small to tiny fles. Amongst some of our favourites are the Polywing Spun Dun, the Quick Caddis, the biot micro caddis and the Spun Dun. (As shown above in that order)

All flies are tied on barbless hooks, either commertially available barbless patterns such as the TMC 900 Bl, Barbless Grip hooks in a variety of styles or when pressed, on standard hooks that are de-barbed at the vice.

Apart from the obvious benefits to the fish, barbless hooks are far more effective, particularly when fishing ultralight tackle where the force required to set a barbed hook simply isn't possible. Here barbless patterns hook and land more fish than one would ever achieve with barbed patterns.
