'Your Guide to Fishing SUCCESS'

Why was this series created?

This series was created to help you succeed, catch more fish and enjoy your time on the water. It was born out of the lack of quality information and simple information to help you learn how to fly fish - the easy way!

I grew up as a young bloke and couldn’t find quality answers to all my questions about fishing… so with this I decided to learn as much as I could and share it with the world!

After watching this series you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to succeed in your fishing trips and you’ll be amazed at how much more enjoyable fishing is once you know what to do!

Pt 3 - Fly Selection

Fly Overview (Dries, Nymphs & Streamers) – 

This first part of the tutorial we show you the three main fly styles.

Understanding Fly Patterns – 

In this part you’ll learn how to tell the differences between each fly style, what each one does and how to tell them apart.

Fly Patterns – Stimulators (Dry) – 

This is the first major fly pattern we cover. These are great for use in summer when fish are rising and aggressive!

Fly Patterns – Terrestrials (Dry) – 

These represent real bugs that fall onto the water in summer. We love using these when the fish are aggressive and you’ll learn how to select the best patterns.

Fly Patterns –  Caddis (Lifecycle) – 

Now this is where we get into flies that match the tiny insects that live around the river. These are one of the main food sources for Trout so understanding the stages of the Caddis is important.

Fly Patterns –  Mayfly (Lifecycle) – 

Similar to above but just a different insect that is found around the water and that Trout love.

Fly Patterns –  Nymphs – 

This is where we talk about a much different style of fly to what we have talked about so far. Nymphs are a massive food source for Trout and one of the most effective flies you can use. James shares with you his favouirte.

Fly Patterns –  Streamers – 

Streamers are the third style of fly and are actually one of the best to use when transitioning from lure fishing to fly fishing.

Spotters Tip: Floatant

Fly Techniques – Dry Fly – 

Using dry flies to catch rising Trout is up there are one of the most exciting forms of fly fishing… but there is so much more that goes into it than just casting a fly. James makes it super easy for you to understand in this segment.

Mending Technique – 

This is by far one of the most important things when it comes to fly fishing… knowing how to mend. While out on the water James explains what the process and demonstrate this so you can implement this when you’re on the water.

Fly Techniques – Swinging Nymphs – 

This technique consists of fish sub surface with the nymphs we showed you in the previous tutorial. Its a great way to cover lots of water and easily catch numbers of quality fish and can be used in most waterways.

Fly Techniques – Dry Dropper – 

This is a technique you will use at some stage or another and is used when fishing your way upstream (great small creek technique). It consists of using both a dry fly and nymph at the same time to cover the water.

Fly Techniques – Backwater Sight Fishing –
