Weight vari­a­tion

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know How -

Most flies in­crease in weight as they in­crease in size. This is gen­er­ally how it should be as you need more weight to sink a large wa­ter-re­sis­tant fly than a small slim one. How­ever, there are times when you need to get a fly deep with­out in­creas­ing its size. Then it's a good idea to have flies that are the same size and shape but are avail­able in var­i­ous weights (eg, us­ing wire or beads). Th­ese are hard, if not im­pos­si­ble to come by if you buy flies. An­other rea­son for ty­ing your own.
