  • Wet flies

    Here are a few of wet flies. was interesting to tie and as many people say they work well for trout.

    Leadwing Coachman:
    Another well known classic fly. The Leadwing Coachman is often used during Isonychia Season, since the nymphs of those mayflies are known to migrate to shore so they can emerge on streamside rocks.

    The Alexandra: or Lady of the Lake, as it was then called, was introduced some time around 1860. It was re-named in honour of Princess Alexandra. There seems to be a bit of doubt about who created it. Some think it was W.G. Turle, of Newton Stacey; others that it was Dr. John Brunton, inventor of the Brunton's Fancy.
    ( At one point in time it was such a popular and successful pattern that its use was literally banned on certain waters!)
