Flies For Dartmoor

When fly fishing on Dartmoor fly size is more of a consideration than the actual pattern. This is simply a case of the environment that the trout live in and the lack of real food source for them. If you fly looks like food and it has been presented without spooking the fish then there is a good chance the fish will look at it!

We prefer to fish flies in sizes 16 to 22. The usual description of flies needed is small and black and we wouldn’t disagree with that too much. Our fly boxes usually carry the following.


Parachute Adams

Elk Hair Caddis

Black Gnats

Sparkle Duns

Griffiths Gnat

We also have a few of our own favourite flies that we’ll show you on your day with us!
