Consecutively I will add more types of flies tied by me. If you have any questions or suggestions concerning the content of this website or fly tying please e-mail me at the address available in the Contact section.
Each of us has met on the river (in particular in late autumn or in winter) situation when the fish are taking something from the surface. In general these are micro flies called midges.
The Copper John is a simple, effective and very popular nymph in recent years, particularly in the USA, but not only there. This relatively young pattern has many modifications, here differs from the original only the wing case and UV glue.
Snatcher is a very successful lake fly which is worth using when trout are feeding near the surface. These types of patterns are tied on a curved hooks type of Gammarus, or Pupa profile and recognizable sign is hackle on the body.
Another simple lake buzzer tied for the next trips to the Czech fishery. I used here two new and interesting in our market materials: thin thread/winsel the Micro Glint and a red version of the popular Loon UV glue.
This nymph has been tied from highly valued material by many fly tiers - the catgut. I caught on this pattern in the last day of the trout season several trouts on small river nearby to me.
The Surf Candy is classic saltwater baitfish fly pattern known for several decades, which is fabulously simple to tie. It was invented by Bob Popovics for catching bluefish, then has been tied from the Bucktail hair and epoxy.
UV colors and flies tied with a UV materials are very well seen by the fish, for sure a trout and grayling - that's what I know from my own experience.
Booby is another type of lake flies with characteristic eyes made from floating round foam. Very simple and effective pattern for trout or perch.
Another lake pattern which has to imitate the insects of the family Tipulidae. At the end of summer and early autumn those insects are often prey for lake's trout and other species. The author of the traditional version with the hackle is the British fly angler Richard Walker.
Jig nymphs with beads in mettalic pink are highly effective and pupular in fly boxes of many fly anglers, with those who representing their countries in competition at the highest level. This color of bead has something and it works well not only in nymphs (presented at 2011-11-11 lake pattern Pink & White Killer).
