I am hoping to take a holiday in Normandy in July this year. Can anyone give me some pointers as regards trout fishing in the region in either still or running water?

Thanks in anticipation,

If you go into any fishing tackle shop, you will find a plethora of fly fishing flys. In fact, you might find that the shop has an overwhelming amount of fly fishing flys. It can be hard to know where to even start looking, let alone how to know which flys to buy.

To help you out, here are some basic descriptions of some of the major types of fly fishing flys:

Wet Fly Fishing Flys

The flys are supposed to resemble certain insects as they would look beneath the surface of the water. Fish will bite at wet fly fishing flys, thinking that they are drowned insects, aquatic insects, or larvae swimming to the surface to hatch. When using wet flys, you are not necessarily trying to imitate a particular insect or fish, etc. (whereas you are trying to do so when using dry flies or nymphs). Wet fly fishing flys are supposed to imitate insects in motion… they look like they are swimming to the surface or drowning, etc. You do not need perfect technique to fish with wet flys.

Dry Fly Fishing Flys

These fly fishing flys are meant to resemble an insect floating on the surface of the water (although, some do not imitate insects, but rather frogs, snakes, or mice, etc.) To keep the fly on the surface of the water, many of them need to be oiled with something like Gink. Some flys rely on the surface tension of the water to float.

A sportsman who is looking for some exotic fishing or fly-fishing travel is always pleasantly surprised to hear of fishing and fly-fishing possibilities for a different game fish species, especially when it is to be found in the magnificence of the rivers that drain the Himalayan Ranges.

The sought after sport fish in these rivers is called "The Himalayan Mahseer", a species not a lot of us are familiar with. It is a species indigenous to the Indian Sub-Continent and to ones pleasant surprise it does take very well to artificial baits, and can grow to weights in access of 70 lbs. Furthermore, the Mahseer are a species that have always been regarded as one of the hardest fighting freshwater species of fish.

"The Goonch" is another indigenous catfish species that is to be found in the same waters as the Mahseer. This illusive catfish is perhaps one of the only catfish species in the world with teeth and can grow to 400lbs!

The Himalayan streams are also host to the Trout, which were introduced in the rivers of Kashmir in the turn of the twentieth century. Over the years the fish have been introduced in many high altitude streams and lakes throughout the Himalayas - both Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout are to be found there.

So when you call or email us we'll give you a choice of various rivers you could fish with us in, and depending on your priorities of whether you'd like to fly-fish, or target the trophy fish in the remotest waters of the Himalayas we will help you decide the river and the right timing for your trip.
