With Christmas behind us and Spring a long way off you may need to be hardy, some might say mad! to be fishing but...
On still-waters snakes, weighted lures, apps bloodworms and blobs will be the first choice for many of us as winter really bites. With cool water and no weed winter can often produce the best fishing of the year - but don't fish too light and risk losing 'Mr Big'! It's not impossible to see fish rising on a warmer, calmer day so it's worth remembering to take your suspender buzzers or maybe a little F-Fly to tempt hungry trout into taking. And don't forget to look at some of the newer, smaller lures that can work when the bigger versions fail.
Most grayling fishers will go for a nymphing approach, whilst keeping an eye open for rising fish when conditions are right. Listed below you'll find a good selection of our top sellers. Pike too should be warned, there are some cracking patterns, including some new 2020 flies, ready for action!
Finally, there are a few tried and tested patterns for those heading for warmer shores and the hard fighting fish that live there. Safe travels!
