    Mate I am no wand-waver but I have been told Nymph and dry/wet fly patters are best on Trout. Maybe have a look on some of the fly fishing forums online I am sure you will get more specific answers as my limited understanding is only heresay and I believe different times of the year means you use different patterns to raise the fish.

    Hope this helps

    AS Anthony says Nymphs patterns about size 12 long shank in brown or green are a great fly. fish them up stream and let them come back with the current. You can also fish down and accross, the trout tend to hit it on the swing as it rises. Dries red tags in various sizes , and Royal Wuffs. Do not forget carp are a great target on fly, and are great to practice on, you will need much heavier tippett for them.
    How is the casting going, there are lots of you tube videos on casting. Simple casts like the bow and arrow and roll casts are easy to learn and great when u have trees behind u.

    Any other questions fire away, lots of fly groups on facebook
    Cheers Pete

    Hi Jed, I have this book that I bought many years ago along with a Fenwick rod and sage reel and line Etc.
    The only thing I learned after 3 or 4 sessions was how to whip crack and snap the line before I gave up on fly fishing. This book is full of illustrations on the topic's below.
    If you would like this book which is in better condition than it looks, I would like you to take it if you can make use of it, If you PM me with your address I will post it to you.
