Fridays on the Fly: Top Five Flies for Cold Weather Fly Fishing

Friday instant: the first five flies of flying fish fishing in cold weather

  Therefore, this is the time of the year … You know that the temperature of the year is often more restored than you wading. The colored leaves in autumn are dead. Some of us think winter is the "kidnapping season". However, for those who are suitable for wading and seventeen layers of clothing, the income may be very large.

  To me, strangely, some fishermen don’t even think the possibility of capturing catfish around the freezing point or below. What should I do if the outside is cold? Fish must also eat! In my opinion, this is not the problem I want to fish in the cold, but where is it. I know that many readers are not as lucky as I live in the western part of North Carolina, but this should not prevent you from boarding your favorite flow in cold time. Therefore, for anyone who is still on the fence knows whether it is brave to wet a line of this winter, or you are just looking for some different modes, I list my favorite flies for winter.

  Zebra Midge -Black Line. Silver line. Nickel beads. It is much simpler than this classic. These MIDGE imitations are operating well throughout the year, but I have found the greatest success in most other aquatic insects in the cold month. I like to take them as my first flight, tie the 4 -inch label end of the double knot, and then tie any flies listed below to my point flies. For this kind of flies, I recommend that the size is 18-22, but when fishing, don’t be afraid of smaller (24-26).

Momason -this little -known model is very popular among competitors across the country, and even gets its own theme label on social media #Cantstopthemop. You may be asking yourself, why is it called a mop? Does it clean up the worm container and the bank’s tangled fishing line in some way? No, but this fly can seriously clean up a fishing hole. For those who have not heard of this fly, you may want to write down. It can change your fishing way.Screen-Shot-2015-12-18-A.2.29.14-PMThere are many mop materials for different colors that can be tied up, but I find that the version is the most effective in winter. I tied this pattern to Daiichi # 10 60 -degree fixture hook with a tungsten bead of 4mm Tonglong. The heavy bead head makes this GRUB/CRANE flies larvae/Cardis imitation quickly reaches the bottom, moves slowly, and the drowsy catfish is waiting for a relaxed meal. Try this model, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

Rainbow Warrior -The really awesome winter pattern, especially in delayed harvest streams. As the name implies, the flies are full of colors and flashing, and they are preparing to fight anymore that cannot be spread. Rainbow warriors are particularly effective in 16-20 size of 16-20 size. When fishing is more than 14 inches, such as mop flying or bandworms.

  Flash back to the wild cocktail nymph -another classic classic with flash. No wonder this model has exists forever, it will capture catfish around the world, even in winter! For a great choice for delayed harvesting and wild water, this model is a great Mayfly nymph, which will imitate Midge. For this winter, try different things -like this pattern as usual, but with a pale blue bead head instead of gold. Changes in colors will make stressful fish different from, while still maintaining a natural appearance.
Black Stone Fly -There is no doubt that this is my favorite cold weather dropper. If they are tied correctly, they look superior and will definitely attract the attention of hunger’s eyes. The size of these small stone rods is only hatched in winter from the range of 16-20. In some areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, these may be the only insect you see all day. However, even if the incubation of a small black stone rod may not be obvious, it is not a bad idea tied to the water and testing the water. You may be surprised.
