Weighted Nymphs and Larva

These are ideal patterns to fish on the point with Spiders on droppers. Tied on smaller hooks than other weighted flies these are ideal for wild Trout and Grayling.  The weight of the fly anchors the cast, resulting in a slower drift of the team. A useful tactic is to use two weighted patterns, one on the point and another on a dropper 12 inches away, the combined weight make the team fish deeper than standard tyings. If you need something heavier try a Czech Nymph.

 

Micro Worms

All action fly that tempts fish fished dead drift or retrieved. A larger fly than the hook size suggests. Weighted with copper wire.
