March’s Ideal Flies for this month are :-

A picture of a Flexi Floss Bloodworm Fly

Flexi Floss Bloodworm

The bloodworm is an imitation of the larval stage of the Chironomid midge or buzzer. Bloodworm spend the majority of their time living in a silty tube in the bottom silt. When disturbed they move their bodies from side to side.
Best fished either on a floating line and long leader or sinking/intermediate line near the bottom, using a slow figure of eight retrieve.

A Black Woolly Bugger fly

Black Woolly Bugger

The Woolly Bugger is a lure used for both rivers and stillwaters, it is best fished sunken, either weighted on a floating line / intermediate or unweighted on a sinking line. Use with a steady figure of eight retrieve.

For that extra bit of action, try pinching a small lead shot 6" from the hook.

Another Fritz pattern - The Orange Fritz.

Orange Fritz

A good general fly at any time of the year. Try other colours too. The Orange Fritz works very well when Daphnia are abundant in the summer months.

This fly works superbly when fished using various rates of retrieve. The pattern can also be tied in a variety of colours from dark to very bright. The darker coloured fritz’s are usually fished more slowly than the lighter coloured ones.

A sample of a Cats Whisker Fritz Fly

Cats Whisker Fritz

An all round lure, fish either on a floating, intermediate or sinking line at various rates of retrieve and it should still catch. It works superbly even when fished very slowly or even on the drop. Available in various colours and combinations from orange to black combo’s. One tied with a couple of strands of flourescent straggle in the tail can be deadly.

An Olive Zonker fly.

Olive Zonker

In january the trout are often looking for fry and a zonker of some description is one to have in your box.
The Zonker can be used as a general purpose lure but is most effective when tied in grey or white and used in the fry season. The wing is highly mobile which makes this fly so effective when fry are around. It can be fished static on a long leader using a floating line or on an sinking line and retrieved at various rates of retrieve.
Try it tied in white with a few strands of fluorescent straggle tied in - it can be deadly.

Also, consider the Viva, Spectral Bloodworm, Beaded Apps Bloodworm, Black Pennell, small lures, and the gold ribbed hare’s ear.
