About

The Fly Fishing Channel brings you the best fly fishing action from around the world. Whether you’re a beginner looking for advice or a more experienced fly angler looking for inspiration, there’s plenty to enjoy here.

Fly fishing is enjoyed by millions of anglers around the world today in numerous countries and for an ever expanding list of species. The advancements in tackle development have seen anglers pushing the boundaries with what is possible to catch and anglers have travelled to all corners of the globe to find the next big fly fishing adventure.

The sport actually dates back thousands of years, its origins being traced back to the Macedonians in the 2nd Century,  but it was in England in the 15th Century that fly fishing really took off. Thereafter followed Isaac Walton’s world famous book, The Compleat Angler which in its 5th edition featured 12 chapters from Charles Cotton entitled “Instructions How to Angle for Trout and Grayling in a Clear Stream”

Since then thousands of books have been written  about fly fishing and in more recent times, dedicated magazines published. The video age has brought us dedicated fly fishing TV shows and films and The Fly Fishing Channel is a home to some of the best ones of these.

What’s on the Channel

The Fly Fishing Channel covers a wide variety of programs and films covering all aspects of the sport including adventure films, documentaries, tuition, fly tying and more. Most content is English spoken however there are some excellent programs too in native language which carry English subtitles.

Trout

Trout are probably the most widely sought after species with a fly rod. The development and popularisation of the sport took place in England as described in our film Chalk. The Victorian’s love of trout fishing, saw them take trout around the world colonising them into New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Afghanistan and Argentina. Brown trout were also taken to the US to live alongside the native rainbow and cutthroat and brook trout. Trout make the perfect species to target with fly fishing as they live on a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial insects and small fish which can all be imitated by carefully tied fly patterns. Typically, trout fly patterns can be broken down into 4 distinct groups, dry flies, nymphs, streamers and wet flies.

Trout are voracious and opportunistic feeders but can also be picky and they are incredibly wary of anglers so much be approached with stealth. For these reasons, they represent a fantastic challenge for the fly angler.

Salmon

The Atlantic and Pacific Salmon are the ultimate freshwater quarry for fly anglers. After being born in the river, both Atlantic and Pacific species migrate to sea and put on significant weight and muscle before returning to the rivers in subsequent years and it is then that anglers target them. The Pacific Salmon covers 5 distinct species, Chinook, Coho, Chum, Sockeye and Pink. Salmon do not feed at all once enterring freshwater, their only instinct to reach the spawning grounds so its still not fully clear why they take an artificial fly at all but its believed to trigger a memory of what they ate in saltwater. Salmon flies commonly therefore represent shrimp or bait fish rather than anything that actually lives in the river.

Fly fishing for salmon often involves the use of large double handed rods which are needed to cover the large rivers that salmon migrate up. This involves a completely different casting style to that of trout rods and the ‘Spey’ cast was developed on the River Spey in Scotland a fantastic river that can be seen in Blue Charm.

The plight of salmon in recent years has been of great concern to anglers and conservationists alike as numbers of returning Atlantic Salmon have dropped significantly in recent years. Films like Salmon Confidential and Atlantic Salmon Lost at Sea highlight some of the many issues involved.

Saltwater

Saltwater fly fishing has exploded in recent years and anglers are still discovering new and exciting species to target on a fly rod. Traditionally, bonefish, tarpon and permit were known as the main saltwater flats species to target. Rods and lines with heavier weights are used to catch these hard fighting flats species with artificial flies imitating shrimp, crabs or small fish.

Fly fishing for offshore species such as sharks and bluefin tuna can also  provide some spectacular results and game fish such as marlin or sailfish can also be targeted by fly rods once brought within casting distance of the boat using teasers.

In the southern states of the US, redfish, snook and sea trout are also common species to target with fly rods in lagoons and inshore fisheries whilst in the UK, more and more anglers are taking up saltwater fly fishing and trying for bass and pollack.

In tropical regions, like Alphonse in the Indian Ocean, Giant Trevally have become one of the most sought after fly caught species. Growing to prodigious sizes, aggressive and powerful, they represent one of the ultimate challenges for the saltwater fly angler.

Tuition

Fly fishing is possibly the most technically difficult discipline in fishing. Learning fly casting generally requires one to one instruction and a lot of practice. For consistent success fly anglers need to be good casters to present their flies accurately and delicately and the ability to cast at distance can be an advantage in some situations. Once the basics have been learned, then watching videos like Casting That Fly can help develop your skills further.

For the trout and grayling angler a good grasp of entomology certainly helps when identifying insect hatches and being able to match the hatch with the right pattern.

Fly Tying

Many fly anglers derive a great deal of pleasure from tying their own flies and using these rather than shop bought imitations. There’s just a little more satisfaction deceiving a fish on one of your own creations! Tying your own also enables the fly angler to develop his own patterns or variations of established patterns. Some anglers may be a little intimidated when starting fly tying so video series like Fly Tying Secrets could help you get started. The channel has specific series on salmon, trout, pike and saltwater fly patterns so go hit the bench!

Juhani Henriksson and his Arctic Waters team continue their fantastic trip to the awe inspiring Kharlovka on the Kola Penninsular in Russia. One of the guides 'Big Alex' has become a favourite with the guys and they spend a special day with him on a unique stretch of water, where they are into fish after fish. There's some great battles and plenty of ones that get away. However in another swim Jari does manage to net a 35lb plus fish that means he is presented with a commemorative ring, only 5 or 6 of which get given out each year. Happy days.

The intrepid Arctic Waters team head to Lakselv in northern Norway, ready to try their hand at a variety of fishing. First up they take a boat out into the Arctic Ocean hoping to catch some monster Cod or Halibut, however stormy waters force them back and they have to start fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon on the Lakselva River a little earlier than planned. This too proves tougher than they imagined, but even though the fish prove somewhat elusive, they all agree that it's still easy to enjoy a trip such as this, when the scenery is so beautiful and they are in good company.

Juhani Henriksson and his Arctic Waters team head north in this episode, 300km inside the Arctic Circle to Lapland Hide a small resort that claims to be in "the middle of nowhere" and just about is. They are here with some guys from the WWF exploring the sustainability of salmon in Finland's northernmost rivers and how to increase their numbers in rivers across the whole country. Although remote, Lapland Hide does boast electricity and gourmet food prepared by an award winning chef, so they aren't exactly slumming it. Oh and there are some excellent Salmon and Whitefish to be caught in the Lätäseno River that runs past the back door.

The River Laxa in Dolum is another of Iceland's great salmon rivers. Boasting an average annual catch number of over 1000 salmon with just 4  rods available and a short season means action can be fast and furious here at times. The river is managed by the Hregnassi Angling Club and is situated in West Iceland just 2 hrs from Reykjavik. Eggert joins club marketing manager and guide, Haraldur Eiriksson, in late season, who shows us some of the best pools on the river which at this time of year are literally stuffed with salmon. This doesn't mean they are easy to catch though, having seen many flies and possibly been in the river for a few months, so as Halli explains, small sparse flies and delicate presentation are needed as well as the hope of a fresh fish or two arriving in the pool and seeing your fly. Laxa in Dolum is another reminder of what a fantastic country Iceland is for fly fishing and another reason to put it on your bucket list. To watch this episode, just login or register now

Lessons with Lefty
1:11:50 
Lefty Kreh is rightly regarded as a true pioneer and legend in the world of US  fly fishing. He started fly fishing in 1947 and has since taught and inspired thousands of anglers to fly fish through his books, articles, videos and through personal tuition. The skills and techniques he developed in forging his career as a professional fly angler are as relevant today as ever. Lefty was especially passionate about saltwater fly fishing and invented the world renowned Lefty's Deceiver fly. In this film, Lefty shows you how you can introduce others to fly fishing and teaches you how to teach them to fly cast. You'll learn how to identify poor technique and common mistakes and Lefty will actually teach you how to cast badly so you can see the kind of issues beginners encounter such as tailing loops. Watching this film, shows just what a great fly casting instructor Lefty Kreh really was and can hopefully inspire you to introduce new people to the sport.

Its August and we start at the top of the River Sela with guide Denni and angler Gisli Asgeirsson. Taking it in turns to fish a pool and then hitch it, the anglers are soon into fish in the crystal clear river. Because of the water clarity here, the catch rate is as high as 70% for multi winter fish and 50% for grilse. Later in the day, the men split up and Gisli heads a short distance over to the River Vestadalsur which runs parallel to the Sela and into the sea at Vopnafjordur. He joins landowner, and Brtiain's richest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe on the River Vestadalsur for an afternoon of high quality salmon fishing. Being the landowner has some distinct advantages as some pools haven't been fished all summer, dramatically increasing their chances of hooking up. After catching a few nice salmon, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has to get back to work and leaves his beloved River Vestadalsur so we rejoin Denni on the Sela who is also having a successful session and is now looking for bigger salmon.

The Clouser Minnow
1:25:48 
Bob Clouser presents this in depth film about his most famous fly, the Clouser Minnow. Although known primarily as a saltwater pattern, the fly also works equally well in freshwater especially when fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass. Bob explains how and why he first invented the fly, before taking us through the materials needed to tie the perfect Clouser Minnow before expertly tying the pattern for us.  Bob then hits the water, and shows us the various retrieves that you should use to get the best action out of the fly and entice takes. Returning to the bench, Bob shows us some variations of the fly including tying a rattling version as an extra attractor for bass and adding a weed guard to the pattern. This is a brilliant film by the man who created one of the most famous flies ever invented and which now sits in the fly boxes of almost every saltwater fly angler.

The pilot episode in a new series called Arctic Waters. In this episode the team visit two rivers in Northern Finland reknowned for their great fishing, the Tornio and the Ounas. This area is well set up for the travelling fisherman and their families with many lodges available during summer and it needs to be as Finland boasts the highest fishing participation level for fishing worldwide as over 50% of the population do so. The Ounas was once famed for salmon but due to obstacles the salmon no longer run but it remains a haven for trout and arctic grayling. The team and experts discuss the potential of the Ounas as a salmon river...could they thrive here again? The Tornio, on the other hand is possibly the most famous baltic salmon river in Finland with over up to 100,000 salmon spawning in the river each year. The rod catch isn't bad either with 10-20,000 caught on the river annually. The river is wide in places so must be fished with a boat but offers great opportunities for both fly and lure anglers. The show is presented in Finnish with English subtitles.

Lefty Kreh and Bob Clouser are on the fly tying bench together and showing us some deadly saltwater and freshwater flies. They start by demonstrating bend back flies with Bob showing how he ties a Bendback Clouser. Next its Bucktail Deceivers, which are easy to tie and which look fantastic in the water. Despite being quite large flies, this pattern is lightweight and therefore can be cast using 8 or 9 weight rods. It can be used effectively for saltwater species like snook, tarpon and redfish as well as Northern Pike in freshwater and in smaller sizes for largemouth and smallmouth bass. Lefty and Bob then tie classic versions of their two most famous patterns, Bob's Clouser Minnow and Lefty's Deceiver and discuss how many variations can be made once the style is mastered. Bob then shows us the Maxi Minnow which can be 6-9 inches long which is sometimes crucial to attract larger fish, whilst Lefty's shows us the Hackle Fly, a classic bass pattern. We watch Bob tie his BP Clouser tied on a smaller hook which is fantastic for bonefish before Lefty discusses Popping Bugs which are excellent in both freshwater and saltwater and then shows us how he makes a popping bug from scratch. Finally, Bob and Lefty demonstrate the Half and Half, which is....you guessed it, half Clouser Minnow and half Lefty's Deceiver. Tying Flies that Catch Fish is a timeless instructional video as you can be pretty sure that the patterns invented by these two, will be catching fish for eternity.
