FLY TYING PATTERNS FOR TROUT AND GRAYLING
Fish eat bugs (and sometimes sticks, stones and cigarette butts). They don’t know Latin and can’t count tail fibers. But what they do care about is efficient fly tying patterns. On these pages we have collected fly tying patterns for trout and grayling that actually catch fish. The patterns are divided into four main groups – The Mayflies, The Caddisflies, The Midges and Other. These main categories each have separate sub categories. Use the menu structure below to navigate.
