NEWS, VIEWS & REVIEWS FROM FLY FISHING SNOWDONIA
Fishing for me has never been about catching the biggest fish or the most fish, though I accept it feels good to catch a big one occasionally. Because I'm not under any self imposed pressure to catch I often set myself challenges when I go fishing, only use dries, or spiders, or nymphs etc. Today's challenge was to only carry with me 12 flies I'd tied myself. Well 12 was plenty, I caught all the fish mentioned in a previous post on just 5 - 1 dry, 1 spider and 3 nymphs.
My tying isn't particularly pretty but the fish don't seem to mind!
Below are the flies I used. I'm not aware that these patterns have names (please tell me if you know otherwise) so the names are my own.
