If you looking to learn to fly fish, this is a great series for you. The variety of waters and conditions that trout anglers can find themselves in is almost infinite, so having the right knowledge and skills is essential to give the best chance of hooking a fish.
Steve Cullen heads up a team of expert anglers who run through what you need to know to catch trout on the fly on stillwaters and rivers. The series touches on topics as varied as how to make sure you're covering the water properly and the most effective way to use different flies, plus a few more unusual tips, hints and tricks from some of the most knowledgeable fly fishermen out there.
Steve Cullen faces some challenging conditions on the Derbyshire Derwent, at the junction with the River Wye. He's got to deal with low water but this is one of the few places where wild rainbows spawn in the UK, so he's got his eyes on a Grand Slam of a brownie, a grayling and a rainbow. He uses nymphing tactics and watercraft, as well as dries to tempt the fish.
Steve Cullen visits Elinor Trout Fishery in Northamptonshire and demonstrates the tactics, set up and approach you'll need to fish buzzers effectively in stocked stillwaters. In spring and early summer, trout can really lock on to chironomids and often become completely preoccupied with them ignoring other food completely, so knowing how to fish buzzers properly is a crucial weapon for the stillwater angler.
