Enjoyed reading the March issue of total flyfisher this morning. Especially Terry Phillips article on the river Dee. Some great points on bugging in high water and some cracking fly patterns.
Anglers and egg flies sometimes don’t get along, its a love ’em or hate ’em sort of marmite scenario. Recently, i’ve used egg flies on both rivers and small waters, and was pleasantly surprised to their effectiveness. Fished under an indicator to dictate its fishing depth to intercept any cruising fish, altering the depth every 20minutes or so to find the preferred feeding depth.
