Black Cormorant traditional lure.
Lures, love them or loathe them? Purist fishers would say lures are not their favourite type of fly. Why? Lures catch fish, this is the pursuit we all take part in and lures play a huge part in that pursuit.
Starting generally in size 8 we stock a huge variety of lures in all shapes and sizes. Traditional lures from the magnificent Ace of Spades all the way to more modern day lures tied with some really fantastic materials, like Fritz, Zonkers or FAB flies.
Lures are not really designed to clone any type of fly, they are more designed as an attractor that will turn the head of a trout and gain interest from a varied retrieve.
There are many ways lures can be fished, I think we all measure the conditions and make our minds up when at the water. Our personal favourites here at fish would have to be, the Yellow Dancer, the Olive Flash Damsel, Ace of Spades, Viva and the age old favourite Cats Whiskers.
During colder months, Lures can be a fantastic way to get normally flat water moving. Fished slowly in retrieve using one of the above will surely result in some great sport.
As with every fly in the fish fishing flies stock, we offer a no quibble 100% money back guarantee on quality. You can simply not buy flies tied of exceptional quality hooks at these prices.
Check out our link below to Wikipedia which shows you the history of artificial flies used in fly fishing today. It is an interesting article and gives you an insight into how it all came about.
