SPRING

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Spring is per­ceived by many as THE ‘sea­son’ when it comes to fly-fish­ing. Un­de­ni­ably, the months of April and May hold so much prom­ise, prin­ci­pally due to an abun­dance of fly life and more set­tled weather. Dur­ing this pe­riod, not only are buzzer hatches in full swing, we can expect lake, or pond olives too. That’s be­fore ter­res­tri­als are even con­sid­ered, which in­clude hawthorn flies and their smaller cousins, black gnats.

Black gnats thrive in up­land ar­eas.
