Deadly new flies, from river to predator patterns

 With exciting new options for wild trout, pike, perch and zander, Turrall have some fantastic fish catchers on the way for late 2015. Combining fresh ideas to our top class hooks and materials, both Chris Ogborne and Dominic Garnett have created new must have flies that will appeal not just to traditional anglers, but also predator fishing fans.

Barbless River Flies by Chris Ogborne

For anyone who ever had that nagging feeling of not having the right flies on the river, this new selection is the perfect solution. The concept was to bring all of Chris Ogborne’s experience into a single fly box, providing dries, emergers and wets that cover virtually every base.

 Nor are these flies like all the rest. Tied beautifully sparse, unlike so many commercially tied flies, they also feature top quality barbless hooks that make them ideal for catch and release. Among universally useful patterns, there are also some great twists in the set too, including a river emerger buzzer and deadly sinking nymphs. Available individually, or as a beautifully presented collection, these flies will catch anywhere in the world.

Filling a really useful niche, these new flies have lots of movement and a faster sink rate that makes them brilliant for deep or running water. Featuring dumbell eyes, they also fish “point up”, making them less prone to snagging up when you fish close to the bottom.

Flyfishing for Coarse Fish author Dominic Garnett has refined these great predator catchers over several seasons, taming not only big pike, but zander with them. When predators are sluggish or lying deep, their fast sink rate and deadly jigging motion make them succeed where standard pike fly patterns fail.

Drop Shot Minnow Flies

Have we got a screw loose with these new gems? Not in the slightest! A great option on either game gear or drop shot tackle, these will appeal to lure fishers as much as fly casters.

With super sharp, wide-gape dropshot hooks, these patterns fish “point up” and have excellent hooking properties. An exciting new development, there are many ways they can be fished. All predator fish will take them, but they are especially good for perch.

We will be showcasing these new patterns at the 2015 Tackle and Guns show, for general release this autumn. Do also keep an eye on our Facebook page for further news, updates and giveaways.
