Brown Trout Hunting at Pitsford Reservoir

I have been waiting patiently for the weather to cool a little over here in England before targeting the reservoir Browns. Although it wasn’t a blisteringly hot August, it was still hot enough to make our big reservoirs a little tricky. When hunting big browns, you need the odds to be in your favour. Ideally, we need cool but also clear water. With the recent heat, Pitsford Reservoir had turned a little green with algae making targeting browns over the...

The Fly Shop Invitational Competition – Islanders Collect Bronze

Our annual trip across the pond to Wales could not come quick enough as many of our competitions had been cancelled or postponed. We were waiting in eager anticipation to get all the gear packed up and the road trip started! After the excellent fishing on Clywedog last year we were all excited to get back out on the water. When we reached our accommodation at Hafren Forest Bunkhouse we were greeted by Sarah and Darren who were excellent hosts...

The Fly Shop Welsh Hawks Take Silver at the Airflo International on Rutland – by David Hoppe

We split the team into three areas; North Arm,...

Top 10 must have fly lines for competitive loch style fly fishing

Since launching the fly shop and guiding one question I get asked a lot is why so many lines and what would you class as essential. The first is a floating line this is a must have. I use the Loop Opti still water in a WF7. This line is mainly used for dry fly or bung fishing. It loads the rod very fast and is great for covering moving fish fast. It also turns the bung and flies over...

Arden Pollock Top 10 winter Stillwater flies

Love it or hate it, bung fishing can be a very productive method on the small Stillwater’s, particularly in the colder months of winter. A small weighted fly fished 4-6ft below the indicator can be devastating when no other methods are working. Once you work out the depth the fish are feeding at you can present your fly completing static in the zone. These are my favourite flies for beneath the bung.
