'DW Fly Fishing & Tying':
Pursuing the UK's wild trout and grayling with the fly
Friday, 29 March 2013
In anticipation of the new season, I have been tying some flies for the stillwater box too. Quills make a super fast but highly effective buzzer imitation. Allowed to fish with virtually no movement, other than that provided by the wind, takes can be savage. My preferred sizes are 16 and 14.
Hook: Partridge YK4A #16
