August has been a wet month helping to keep temperatures down.. Until the late summer heat wave hit! Many fisherman have had some great fishing, and we have had a few entries into our catch competition; remember to upload your catch photos to be entered into this month's draw!
There is something beautiful about the 2 Daddies, 2 Snails, 4 Apaches and 2 Salmon patterns which have hit our top ten fly fishing chart this August. The Pearly Daddy has remained in top spot for a record third month running! The Green Snail is close behind with the recently added Grey snail picking up it's pace (not forgetting the Foam daddy which deserves a mention as it is selling strong).
Fresh Apache stock arrived after this chart was produced, so there is no bias with people rushing to get fresh supplies; they are truly proving to be a robust choice of pattern.
It's also great to see increased activity in Salmon fishing this year.
These trending flies show a great impression of what is happening on the water at the moment, and directly shows what patterns other fisherman are using to catch those fish!
