10 ‘must-have’ flies

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice Squad -

QWe Q We all have boxes and boxes of flies, but is there a top five pat­terns for reser­voirs and still­wa­ters that we re­ally need to catch trout with? Dar­ren Everitt PET PETER TER COCKWILLILL COCK­WILL REPLIES: REPLIEREP LIES: If you asked this ques­tion of a dozen an­glers you would prob­a­bly get a dozen dif­fer­ent an­swers, but let's look at it this way. One of my great plea­sures in life is do­ing fea­ture days for the mag­a­zine, but that means I MUST catch on the day, so I’ve high­lighted here the flies that I rely on to do ex­actly that. Hav­ing sim­pli­fied things to this ex­tent I would then al­most cer­tainly be look­ing at vari­ants in size and weight. This means my fly flflfly­fly boxes very quickly be­come more com­plex – but I sup­pose that's what makes us fly fish­ers!
