Here’s some useful advice about which flies to bring, bearing in mind that it is always advisable to “read the stream” or the stretch of water where you fish and to consider the insects flying at that time above the water and the surrounding area.
Sticking to classic flies, here is a short list of types of dry, wet and nymph flies which should never be missing from our fly boxes.
Iron Blue Dun, Red Spinner, Brown Bivisible and Sedges in general and specifically during the summer; particularly useful at dusk.
We also recommend March Brown, above all at the start of the fishing season.
During the period between July and October you might have success using a Brown Sedge, whilst between May and June our advice is to use a Black Gnat whilst a Cock-y-Bondu is one of the best solutions between June and October.
Iron Blue Dun
For the period between March and May and between September and October, Blu Dun is also amongst the recommended flies to have ready in your jacket.
And don’t forget to bring a few nymphs such as Pheasant Tail Classic, Prince Nymph Chocker, GR Hare’s Ear or Peacock Pheasant Tail which are always efficient.

Talking of nymphs, your basic requirements are Plecotteri nymphs which usually get results when aiming to catch trout and grayling, without forgetting several weighted nymphs.
March Brown, Butcher, Sniper and Purple, as well as Partridge and Orange are classic wet flies which might prove to be successful in our pure mountain waters and in the proximity of waterfalls and rapids.
For grayling, undoubtedly one of the most sought-after fish by our guests, our advice is to go for small flies and to make sure that your fly box contains some Black Sedge, Black Midge and Iron Midge as well as the classic grayling flies such as the Grayling Witch and Red Tag.
