New fly fishing patterns introduced in 2017

We regularly take requests from our members for new patterns. Whilst some of these patterns are from our extensive library of flies, others are patterns which customers are struggling to get hold of elsewhere and yet others have been developed by fly fishermen who no longer wish to tie the fly themselves.

These new patterns often prove to be very popular, they may be unique, a variation of an existing pattern and some are even rare but we have realised that it is not always obvious they are now available. That is why we have decided to create a detailed list of new patterns which we have stocked for the very first time.

This is our previous year’s list of new patterns. You can view our current year so far, but remember we are only a few months into the year. Unlike other retailers, we respond dynamically to your requests, so new patterns are gradually introduced throughout the year. Make sure you revisit regularly so that you don’t miss any gems! 

All patterns in this section are shown regardless of their status; some may have already sold out, but like all our flies, if you can't buy them now you can always request more to be made up!

Stimulators

If there's anything which gets fish excited, and secretly most fisherman, it's a well tied bushy stimulator. We love these two new patterns which we made up this year, both of which have jumped straight into our top seller list!

Winged Patterns

When you think of fly fishing patterns, winged flies tend to spring to mind and we are pleased to have added some fantastic patterns. We particularly love the Rat Faced McDougall, and the Green Peter / Invicta; but they are brand new patterns at time of writing, so please help us get these patterns up into our Top 10 chart this year!

Terrestrials, Caddis and Larva

We love the artistic aspect of fly fishing patterns, and the Trout Frog is one of those patterns that we are proud to produce. In the true fly fishing spirt of mimicking what's 'in, on and around' the water, a frog really captures this to its full degree, and we think this pattern is brilliant at looking the part!

Salmon

Salmon fishing seemed to have had a slight increase during 2017, with better catch rates than in the past few years. Let us hope that this is not just a blip but instead things are finally turning a corner and salmon stocks are beginning to recover. The new patterns include some classics and some gimmicks - you've got to love the ingenious Chernobyl ant!
