Fly fishing has been a part of angling history since the early Roman period when anglers first realised they could catch predatory fish using ‘fraudulent flies’. The sport has retained its popularity to this day, and for many non-anglers when you mention the word ‘fishing’ they will immediately think of flies.
Flies are an integral aspect of fly fishing, in much the same way that bait is an integral part of carp or coarse fishing. Without flies, an angler would just be dropping their line in the water and praying that a fish comes along and likes the look of their hook.
Angling Direct stocks a range of trout and salmon flies, all of which have been expertly designed to keenly match the prey of their target fish. Our range includes surface flies that are designed to float on the surface, such as mayfly imitation, daddy long legs imitation, and a sedge fly, buzzers, nymphs & emerging fly patterns and bright attractor flies that tend to be less natural-looking.
Fulling Mill is the world leader in commercial fly-tying, so you can be confident that the flies you buy from Fulling Mill really are world-class. Alongside the range from Fulling Mill, Angling Direct also stocks a full range of flies from Daiwa. Daiwa understands that the Japanese fly fishing tradition differs from its European cousin, and Daiwa has developed its range of flies with cast master Hywel Morgan. This ensures that the entire range of Daiwa’s fly fishing flies are of the utmost quality, with exceptional standards of tying throughout the range.
