Every year we come up with new flies resulting from feedback from fishermen on the Irish Lakes and Rivers. This year is no different, below we have a selection of flies that we're sure you'll be thrilled with.
The Salmon Minitubes in this section will not be available until April 2018
Every year we bring in new fly ranges for your trout and salmon fly fishing. Here are the last few years of patterns.
NEW Trout Fly for 2018
This "Black Artic Fox Spent" pattern was given to me recently by Dennis Moss. It is one of his favourites for spent gnat fishing everwhere from Lough Derg to Lough Sheelin. The soft wing and flat hackle style make it lie low in the surface film and it is easily taken under by trout. A must for the serious Gnat Fisherman in 2018.
Anyone who has read Dennis's book “Trout From A Boat” will realise how particular the author is in his choice of body colours and correct fly proportion. This range, which reflects these important properties, covers all the essential patterns needed for fishing Corrib and Mask. Dennis's favourite early season wet fly patterns are included along with nymphs, buzzer patterns, wet and dry olives, mayfly and sedges. This is a must have range for the serious Lough fisherman who fish the wild Irish Loughs. However, the patterns will prove invaluable on any lake or reservoir where similar fly hatches occur.

This is a very good early season pattern and holds up better than the faster sinking epoxy-coated flies. It is particularly good during late April to mid-May when trout concentrate on the larger olive buzzer.
New for 2018.
This pattern was invented by Dennis as an imitation of the Dun or the newly emerged fly.With a wing of CDC it is easy to see in any light and it holds up well in a big wave. Its initial success was on Lough Sheelin but it will prove effective on any lough where mayfly hatch.

This mayfly is a slight variation on Dennis Mosse's Ginger Mayfly (Modified) which is in the revised edition of his book "Trout From A Boat" It is a beautiful little pattern which sits low in the water and yet is easily seen by the angler due to its artic fox wing.
