FROM FISHING WINSTON FLY RODS:
On this bright but cold day, it took five sweaters to get through the twelve sea trout it took to get through the sample fly. This design combines Danish coastal fly tradition with U.S. saltwater flats fly styles. Highly effective year round. I tie my Yellow Tail Goby in Effective Scandinavian Coast Fly Designs.
One of the five dorado that took the CraftN-Flash design that windy day. Both Silver Show Standards and Dual-Colour versions worked. My CraftN-Flash design is tied and explained in-depth in Effective Predator Fly Designs.
When on the stream from spring well into the late summer, I really like to fish a dry caddis/sedge imitation. Favourite surface flies of mine for river and stream fishing are disclosed in Effective Dry Fly Designs, giving some variations too.
My preferred colour-combo version of the Double Bunny streamer fly is employed on a clear and deep lake during the warmth of summer. On the leader, an Action Disc has been inserted in front of the fly.
#I advocate for practicing C&R on a sound basis…
In the practical fishing examples given above and below, all fish were released back into the water. Practicing catch & release may seem odd, or even cruel, to some, but especially in smaller eco systems, be it a stream or a lake etc., fish populations are quite fragile to high fishing pressure. As a species, the human being has elevated well beyond the point of the other living creatures. We are masters of our world so taking good care of nature is an utmost attention if we are not to destroy it. Hence, proper fish handling becomes yet another skill to learn and keep in mind during the practice of our sport.
