Well finally getting the chance to sit down and replenish the dryfly box with the fly patterns that match the hatches on my local rivers here in south Wales at the moment .
At the moment there are brook dunns, large dark olives and a few other smaller olives, these smaller olives have been hatching a little later on in the day and the fish have been mopping them up and not bothering with anything else really. It took me a bit of time to realise what was going on one afternoon but I figured it out after going right through the box and watching carefully. These times can be so frustrating but it’s all part of the fun of the fishing dries. Here are a few of the pattens that I’ve tied up to match the hatch.
