Flies that catch Trout, Lures

 COMPETITION CAT

 

The famous Cat's Whisker in competition

form.

Tied on Scorpion Competition Heavyweight

hooks,

This fly comes in Yelow, Green or Chartreuse.

 

A little bit of extra flash and a hot spot make

this a real killer.

 Sizes 10 and 12

 

Weighted

£1.50 each

£15.50 dozen

 

Unweighted

£1.25 each

£14 dozen

 PEARLY CORMORANT

 

As a middle dropper on a "washing line" rig this takes some beating. Rarely off the leader

if I'm fishing with any sort of sinking line.

 

Sizes 10 and 12

Unweighted

 

£1.25 each

£13.50 dozen

 PEARLY PIN FRY

 

An established pattern for the fry feeders,

Fish it on a floating line with a long leader, cast it out, let it sink to the bottom , then give

one or two long slow pulls and let it sink again.

 

Sizes 10 and 12

Unweighted

£1.20 each

£13.50 dozen

 LUCKY 7 Mini Lure

 

Tied in a variety of colours this is a great

alternative to a blob as an attractor.

Can be tied in any colour combination to

suit your fishery.

I recommend Damsel, Orange, Green and Black,

Orange and Black.

 

Sizes 10 and 12

Unweighted

£1.20 each

 SINFOIL'S FRY

 

Ken Sinfoil, the baliff at Weirwood and Bewl for many years developed this simple little pattern to fool the fry feeding fish of early autumn.

Still effective today.

 Size 10 and 12 L/S

 

£1.25 each

£14.00 dozen

 

 

 

 THE BLUE BLACK COMET

 

An out and out attractor, colours can be changed to suit, essentially a bead chain eyed long tailed lure
