THINKING ABOUT SALMON AND HOW TO CATCH THEM? FILL UP YOUR TACKLE BOX WITH THESE FLIES!

GLO BUG

As the name suggests, the fly is designed with vibrant “glowing” like colours. We love the idea of creating your own eye-catching, vibrant fly. The flies coloured yellow, pink and orange tend to be most successful and attract the most salmon.

SPEY FLY

Many anglers who go after salmon are more than likely going after the fish with the spey casting technique, hence this is the most adequate fly for the job! To get the most out of this fly, tie the spey fly patterns with long bodies and cast in deeper waters.

WOOLLY BUGGER

This is one of the most essential flies for a dedicated salmon angler to have in their tackle box. Why is the woolly bugger so important? Well the fly is very versatile, it can be used for almost any fish due to the different types of patterns available for it, because of this, the fly is a perfect choice for anglers who want to entice spawning salmon.

SOFT HACKLE GREEN CADDIS

You might be a little surprised why we are including this fly, into your tackle box for this season.. However, lately anglers have been keen to use this fly for salmon. The caddis fly combined with the features of the soft hackle fly make it one of the better flies out there to attract wild salmon.

BLACK STONEFLY

Irish waters are known for their cooler temperatures; therefore, the Black Stonefly is a perfect pick for fishing in colder rivers. Also, if you want to get ahead this season, and start early the Black Stonefly is also great for attracting the earlier salmon. Not to worry, investing your tackle box in this fly does not mean you only use it once, the Stonefly is also a perfect choice for use throughout the later season.
