Flatwing Baitfish

Baitfish flies are a "must-have" in the box, even the most selective dry fly-sipping trouts can be tempted by a fast fleeing baitfish-imitation and forget that the menu is only on small hatching caddis or may-flies. For the coastal-flyfishing we have had the skilled fly-tyer and fly-fisherman John Maduro in the studio to demonstrate his favorite fly - The Flatwing Baitfish - for his favorite fishing for bass along the Irish and English coastlines. A fish imitation as good as this should be in every fly box - give it a try.

Long story short

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
