Trout & Salmon (UK) - - READING RIVERS -

7 The choice of fly is not the most im­por­tant fac­tor for suc­cess­ful sal­mon fish­ing and I rec­om­mend re­ly­ing on fewer pat­terns. Too many of us have box­fuls of dif­fer­ent flies and, as a re­sult, most of us have no idea what to put on. A pre­dom­i­nantly black pat­tern will score in most sit­u­a­tions. Carry it in many sizes, from mi­cro to large Sun­ray Shad­ows. Also, fish Wil­lie Gun­n­coloured pat­terns in peat-stained wa­ter, and try an im­i­ta­tor fly, like the Frances. As the phrase goes: Keep it sim­ple, stupid.

Wil­lie Gunn.
