RESERVOIR TROUT FLIES by ADRIAN FREER
Without doubt, in the British Isles, reservoirs provide the best, and the most accessible and affordable opportunity for catching rainbow and brown trout with an artificial fly.
In whatever part of the country you reside there will probably be at least one day-ticket reservoir close to your home that is stocked with trout. To be consistently successful, the angler will need not only to utilize a wide range of fishing techniques, but also to possess a comprehensive set of artificial flies to cater for every conceivable fishing situation.
Discusses the design of artificial flies with supporting photographs showing their appearance and behaviour beneath the water.
Presents the dressings of over 270 fly patterns divided into nymphs, wet flies, lures [including fly patterns], dry flies and emergers, and terrestrials.
For ease of reference, a photograph of each fly, the dressing menu, a list of variants and comments on each individual pattern are all shown on the same page.
Provides a comprehensive ’on the bench’ reference handbook for both the amateur and professional fly tyer.
Offers helpful advice to anglers contemplating tying their own flies for the first time.
