TO CATCH A SPRINGER

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Trout Surgery -

As well as tweak­ing the ma­te­ri­als of the Wil­lie Gunn you can also change the style in which it’s tied to match dif­fer­ent wa­ter con­di­tions. At the start of the sea­son, in cold wa­ter, you need a big fly, to be fished slowly in the softer flows found near the banks and at the in­side of bends where springers creep up the river. In­trud­ers are ideal, used on a sk­agit line and fast-sink­ing tip. Tied on tubes or shanks, it's al­ways worth hav­ing a few in your box for any oc­ca­sion when the river may bump to heights you think are un­fish­able. It’s sur­pris­ing how many sal­mon you can pick up close to the river’s edge.
