flounder on the fly

Postby kieran » Wed Dec 01, 2004 3:27 pm

HI Liam, H Rocks

Right, flounder on the fly is possible. I have found a crab pattern from Kenya that works really well, also took a wrasse this time last year (very late) off a small rocky beach in Mayo. Very improtant however that you fish with the currents, i.e. flounder will not chase any lure, fly, bait or spoon into a current.

FWIW...

Time spent fishing is never time wasted...

2015 targets - a triggerfish, a specimen bass, a three bearded rockling to complete the set and something big and toothy from certain north Mayo deep water marks

Kieran, Liam,
I was in with Frankie McPhillips a few weeks back (great fly tier). He has a few new patterns in for saltwater, they looked the business. Liam, you could contact him. He has a wee shop in the Buttermarket in Enniskillen. You can contact him through his website :-
