WILDFISH FLATS PACK
The Wildfish fly selection packs from JM Gillies are real eye catchers and sure fire winners for those new to fly fishing and even for some who might be not so new to the sport. There are nine packs (10 Felty’s flies in each) in the range and these are divided into two groups, the Freshwater Trout packs and various Eastuary/Saltwater packs. The reality is that there’s plenty of overlap. For example the Trout Streamer Pack would very easily be at home in the kit of a bass fisherman or in fact a fly fisherman just about anywhere around the country. Conversely the Bass Pack contains flies that are just as at home in many tropical freshwater systems right across the north and in the Billabong Pack are flies that would light up the eyes of a bass fisherman. It’s a very versatile selection that’s been put together by Peter Morse.
FLATS PACK #4
FLATS PACK – Code: 35WFSW4
Selected with a range of species in mind these flies will catch most fish found in the southern estuaries, especially those found up in the skinny water of the flats, Bream, Whiting, and Flathead. Apart from poppers most flats flies should be fished in the bottom third of the water column, if not on the bottom. Sometimes the fly is best on the bottom and at other times it’s best used with a fast retrieve and this can change from day to do. Be prepared to mix up your depths and your retrieves and remember, if in doubt go smaller. The second half of the run out tide is best for most of these fish. These flies can be fished in all of the estuary scenarios, not just the flats.
