How To Tie the DOUBLE MAGGOT

Yes, it’s obscene, BUT it serves a purpose.

With most grayling rivers being bait fished and most with maggots, following a bait fisher hampers your catch rate, so copy what they are fishing with, simple!

As they fish seem to be moving onto pinfry, this little dry fly can work very well.

It can be fished the whole year through really once the trout are up, but just now it excels!

 

How To Tie The Popperfry

I have used this for years and it rarely let’s me down…

Use it to catch pinfry feeders in June to sticklebacks feeders in September and October…

I’d advise using glue after securing the foam and the eyes for a more durable fly..

My variation of the Candy Booby, the Candy Cat.

I feel that this fly can often excel over the original for the most part of the fishing year. The inclusion of the green just adds another dimension, this lime green is so good for stocked rainbows and indeed brown trout, try it, I’m sure that you won’t be disappointed!

This fly is designed for Rutland Water but will work its magic on most waters that have vast weedbeds.
The original fly – and how to dress it – was shown to me by Dave Docherty, AKA Curly, a man that lived on the water for years and was thought of as the main man on that amazing venue.
