Top Tips

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Focus On -

1 Start lay­er­ing up with cloth­ing for win­ter. It’s not cold yet but it can be change­able. A fleece/ wa­ter­proof coat is a must. 2 A float­ing line is al­ways your main line of at­tack but when fish­ing sub­sur­face flies it of­ten pays to use an in­ter­me­di­ate line in au­tumn be­cause it cuts through the sur­face and of­fers greater con­trol on windy days. And there are plenty of breezy days now. 3 Tra­di­tional wet flies may be old and in some ar­eas out of fash­ion, but they work just as well as the mod­ern flies and look beau­ti­ful too. Try them be­cause they’re fun to use. 4 Us­ing a ta­pered leader with a mini ring at the end to at­tach tip­pets and a drop­per is be­com­ing very pop­u­lar be­cause you don’t lose all your leader if you get bro­ken.
