SALMON FLIES
When fly fishing for salmon, there is an old rule of thumb; if the sun is shining and the river is clear, then lightly coloured flies will fish best, preferably with silver bodies.
Such as the silver doctor and green highlander. In cloudy and dark weather, dark flies such as the black goldfinch and stoat’s tail work best. And, when the river is swampy or brownish (in a spate!), orange and red coloured flies are excellent appetizers. So here’s a selection of favourite flies suitable for all conditions. These flies are fished with all over Ireland and indeed throughout the world to catch salmon.
