Spring fishing year in year out is at best unpredictable.  The rain, wind and low water temperature can play havoc with the fishing.    

High flow river with discoloured water from runoff.   It sounds a bit like lets not go fishing.The Spring Fly Pack covers all bases for the Acheron. Wet flies, nymphs and dries all with larger hook sizes to suit faster flows and to let the fish see the fly in the discoloured water.

It is still not a bad time to fly fish as the fish are a bit innocent after 3 months of not seeing a fisherman. There is a greater number of bugs crawling round the bottom of the river, growing in size ready to hatch as the weather improves.

  • Best Practice Tip: Keep your droppers long. Long means 1 metre or more.
