Flies for Yellowfish

I have added a few flies to the slideshow on the blog- these are flies that work for me. None of the flies are new inventions, just my way of tying some favourites. Let me know if it works for you! If you require a step-by-step I will add some later, time permitting. If you want more details on materials send me an email or leave a comment.

Ps. Most of the flies are tied for Sterkfontein dam as this is now the prime season, Autumn and winter is around the corner. That is when the Vaal can (weather and water behaving) turn into one of the best dry fly rivers in South Africa. If it was in a pristine wilderness area without pollution, this would be one of the best in the world!!


  1. Hey Carl. Wait untll you fish the Thomas river. Then you will change your way of thinking!!!!
