    Curries Reds!

    I’ve caught more fish on variations of this than any other fly. I like to fish a standard curry’s red on the dropper, and the point fly virtually identical to the dropper, except tried with a bit of orange in it somewhere, could be an orange hen hackle or just some orange veilings added in.

    The Dreaded Flying C

    That’s not 100% true, it’s very dependent on the type of river you fish in terms of its effectiveness. Yes it’s banned on many spate rivers as people antagonise fish with the prawn and it’s can be deadly in this respect. In non-spate rivers where fish are free to run, the flying c covers water...
