Wet Fly Fishing on Rivers

The key to successful wet fly fishing is letting the flies ‘dead drift’. In this DVD I show you the three key techniques.

The ‘across’ method - I find this technique particularly effective on crinkly, near flat glides, when fish are looking up, eagerly knocking off duns and emergers.

Big Dry Flies for Fast Water

In my opinion, the Klinkhåmer has made the biggest impact on river fly fishing in my lifetime. It is a universal fly, it copies everything, and nothing in particular! This pattern has an unbelievable ability is to bring fish up out of the blue, a fish fooling fly with few equals.

Streamer Fishing on Rivers

Streamer fishing on rivers in the UK has never had a following. There is little written material, no books or patterns. Totally different to the UK reservoir fishing scene!. Contrary to what many people think, streamer fishing is not a chuck and chance it technique, it has its own particular skills, equal to any other fly fishing discipline. Importantly, it attracts big, predatory fish and is an Essential Skill for every river fisher’s armoury.

FLIES

These flies are exclusively produced for Essential Skills from master patterns tied by Oliver Edwards.


Close copies of the naturals, incorporating those all important Trigger Features which trout and grayling recognise and key onto. Many are featured in the Essential Skills DVD’s or Oliver’s ground-breaking book Flytyers Masterclass.

These flies are produced on barbed hooks but these can easily be flattened down in the normal way for catch and release.
