Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Readers' Stories -

GROUP FLIES to­gether, for ex­am­ple, by hav­ing a box for ephemerid nymphs. Within this box the flies can be ar­ranged into smaller groups by size, colour, weight or any other char­ac­ter­is­tic that helps you find the fly you want when you want it.

Char­ac­ter­is­tics to con­sider.

• Wa­ter type: streams, rivers and still­wa­ters. Boxes for spe­cific venues. • Sea­son: spring, sum­mer, au­tumn, win­ter • Fish species: trout, grayling, sal­mon, pike, carp, salt­wa­ter. • Fly type: dry-flies, wet-flies, nymphs and stream­ers. • In­sect species: mayfly, cad­dis, stone­fly, midge, ter­res­trial. • Life cy­cle: lava, pupa, adult or nymph, emerger, crip­ple, dun, shuck, spin­ner. • Weight: un­weighted to ex­tremely heavy. • Size: small to large.

Of­ten you will use a com­bi­na­tion of the above meth­ods. Ask your­self what is log­i­cal to you. If it makes sense it will be easy to re­mem­ber.
