Flies

On this page you can find some patterns for dry flies and nymphs. If you bring a few of them, chances are you will have nice fishing. Of course there are numerous flies you can try, this is just a start.

An imitation of the Rhyacophila family of sedge. Fish this nymph deep down, dead drift. Whole season.

Brown Parachute Midge

A Klinkhamer style fly, but quite small. It works as an imitation for small caddis flies and mosquito's. Use it from July until late August.
