Very good article,I have allway's wondered about people who have time to keep and neat and tidy box of flies who are they trying to impress not me if you've got time to clean and keep your fly box neat and tidy you're not fishing.Also like you I belive in the K.I.S.S.(keep it simple stupid) theory so I only tie patterns that work and keep a box of flies that are just ones that failed who knows maybe the'll work on some body of water you never know well back to tying keep up the goo stories comming and let the fur and feathers fly

All these flies will do fine any time of year. The difficulty is not finding the flies, but finding the fish!

In general smaller and duller flies are considered better in the autumn, and last year it was flies like Magnus, Honey Shrimp and small crest bug like patterns that worked.

Are these flies usable during ermmm...let's say a GFF summit late september :) ? I can't find so many pages on flies for late summer. Most flies i see are spring and winter types.

These flies will catch most fish that swim... at least the ones eating stuff subsurface, which most fish actually do most of the time. I know that it will be hard catching a fish feeding on midges or chironomids on one of these guys, but if your brook trout eat baitfish or shrimps on occasion and can be enticed by a downstream swung fly, these patterns will probably work.

Hi Martin, superb flies! Do you think I could catch sea brook trouts with these flies in my area : Quebec, Canada (along the Gaspe Peninsula) So far I have not been successful with the flies I am using (brown hackle, Mickey fin, Adams, etc). Thank you for your help.

Dear Martin,

Liked your article with all the nice pictures a lot, it gave me some drive and motivation to put out the vise again to fill up some patterns which are low in stock.

Discovered your site first while I was doing some research in regard of a blank for a rod building job. In general I like the globalflyfisher website and pass by at least every one or two months to check what's new.

My personal world of fishing has two hot spots, one is Northern America with a lot of good suppliers and manufacturers of fishing equipment and some good sites in regard of rod building. The other is the Scandinavian area where I prefer to go fishing, also with some good manufacturers of equipment as well. So what makes the difference between your site in regard of the content and other sites is that it is not a pure regional site like some others, on top it represents exactly the areas which are of my personal interest in this regard.

This just as a small feedback from the internet.
