Mayo 2010: Owenduff estuary wet-flies

Far and away the best wet-flies on the estuary were smallish (size 10-12) silver- or lurex-bodied wet-flies. Larger patterns such as the Gadget (size 8) or the Sunk Lure (size 12 tandem) were ignored - even though the white-trout were readily hitting spinners and spoons fished by other anglers. Puzzling....but then, that's sea-trout fishing.

One of James's successful patterns was a green lurex-bodied Alexandra, size 12, shown here.
