In this premiere episode of Reservoir Masterclass, Craig Barr visits Staffordshire’s Blithfield Reservoir in search of hard fighting spring Trout on the fly. Drawing from long career of competing and coaching for the England fly fishing teams, Craig demonstrates his concepts of matching the hatch, searching the water, the washing-line setup and effective loch-style drifting. When the weather takes a turn, he explores how to force aggressive reactions from the fish with lures like blobs when they go off the feed, leading to some incredible topwater action. This knowledge, paired with unique underwater footage gives vital insight to the habits and behaviours of reservoir Trout. This is a must watch for all serious fly anglers!
In this instalment of Reservoir Masterclass, Russ Owen introduces us to the award winning welsh water Llyn Clywedog for some heart-stopping dry fly action. As a world champion fly angler and lifelong Clywedog guide, Russ knows every bank and bay of this stunning reservoir like the back of his hand. Even on the hottest June day of the year, the famous Coch-y-Bonddu beetle hatch is in full swing and the surface of the water is alive with feeding Trout. Russ demonstrates how to maximise water coverage, reading the wind, predicting feeding habits and other philosophies that make his dry fly techniques so deadly. Fly fishing doesn't get much better than this!
