'DW Fly Fishing & Tying':
Pursuing the UK's wild trout and grayling with the fly
Hi Dave,I'm a novice at fly tying,can I ask what are the subtle differnces between how the two hackles fish [on a river] and under what circumstances?thanksPeter
Hi Peter,On smoother, glassy glidea, you can get away with a more subtle footprint, whilst still having enough hackle to keep the fly bouyant. Fatser, more turbulent water may call for a denser hackle to keep it floating.A more dense hackle will still catch you fish, but the sparse just gives you the option when the fish are that little bit more picky and wary.Hope that helps a little,Dave.
