UK Fly Fishing Season Enters The Last Few Days

The UK fly fishing for brown trout season has all but ended, depending on where you live; but don’t hang up your rods just yet, as there are  still some great opportunities for you in the coming autumn.

Fresh Trout For Dinner
Fresh Rainbow Trout For Dinner?  These three beauties were caught in a small stocked lake in Scotland by a complete beginner during his first fly fishing lesson.     

Many of the large still waters like Graffam, Rutland and Eyebrook are still open until late October and can offer some fine fly fishing from the banks especially near the weed beds and along the margins.

Some of the bigger fish patrol along the edges chasing fry, so fish for white minkies or black and green tadpoles, or if all else fails try the cat’s whisker or any other fry patterns are always worth a try.

Note too, that dry flies are always worth a cast on warmer day’s, so just keep your eyes open for a hatch and look for feeding fish.

In just another few weeks time, those of you who live near southern chalk streams will quite possibly be out looking for grayling. However, grayling are not just found in the south of England, many Midland and northern rivers have excellent stocks.

In fact, from December onwards you can fish the upper Tweed for grayling and many other Scottish rivers.

A list of potential rivers to fish will be on this website very shortly; so register your details and you will be the first to hear some of the news and views of the grayling season.

Finally, pike fly fishing will really get under way from late October onwards, so get tying some of those monster flies. And if you have trouble casting a big heavy fly, I strongly suggest you try using a double handed rod; it  really will help you get over that troublesome bankside vegetation.
