Is that through choice or lack of availability...?
Pull a team of wets from the bank for a couple of sessions, I say “pull”, sometimes fishing them like buzzers or nymphs is the way forward, but definitely try it.Convenience really, the very local reservoirs to me are bank only and I've always thought of "traditional" loch type flies as being for drifting in a boat, or maybe "cast and one pace" on wild places like Loch Mudle.
I could travel not too far and take a boat on a decent reservoir, (if COVID ever allows it), might be a bit of a comedy though as the last time I fly fished from a boat was for bass in the US......
I have to agree with that. Some of my best days at at Tenterden Trout Waters, most definitely southern lowland lakes, were with a team of wets commonly including GRHE, greenwells, Invicta and butchers ranging from size 10 to 16.Pull a team of wets from the bank for a couple of sessions, I say “pull”, sometimes fishing them like buzzers or nymphs is the way forward, but definitely try it.
It sounds like you will be pleasantly surprised. Dabblers are just as lethal on their day from bank as boat
Nowadays it’s mainly tens and twelves, for no other reason other than my preference to use other tactics if the wind is anything less than what I consider to be good for pulling wets.What size flies do you use most?
