Collection: Flies - Trout Flies

Trout flies encompass a vast and diverse category of artificial imitations designed to mimic the various insects, baitfish, crustaceans, and other food sources that trout feed on in freshwater ecosystems. These flies are specifically crafted to entice trout and are an essential part of a fly angler's arsenal. They are categorized into three primary types based on their purpose and the stage of insect life they imitate: Dry Flies, Nymphs and Streamers
Dry Flies: These are designed to imitate adult insects that end upĀ on the water's surface. They float on the water's surface film, imitating insects like mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies, and terrestrials such as ants, beetles, and grasshoppers.
Nymphs: These flies imitate aquatic insects in their immature or larval stage that live underwater. Nymphs are designed to sink and drift naturally in the water column, mimicking the movement of emerging insects like mayfly nymphs, caddisfly larvae, stonefly nymphs, and midge pupae.
Streamers: These larger, more substantial flies imitate baitfish, leeches, or other small aquatic creatures.
