Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Emerger - Bob Wyatt's most celebrated trout flies.

Bob Wyatt has fly-fished for trout in North America, Europe and New Zealand since the 1950s.  His book, Trout Hunting, challenged some conventional thinking regarding how trout work, and presented some fresh insights on why some great old flies continue to catch fish after a century or more of increasing fishing pressure.  The reason is that, contrary to much expert opinion, trout are not getting smarter.  If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout.

 

Over fifty years of fly fishing has convinced Wyatt that a few basic designs will cover almost any fishing situation, and in most cases will catch fish better than specific patterns created for the so-called ‘selective trout’.  The reason they work so well is because of the way a trout’s brain works.  These fly designs are based on the most important ‘triggers’ to a trout’s feeding response – a fly’s size, shape and posture in the water.  In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout’s food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation. Presentation is the key.  Well proven for fly fishing in New Zealand, with these flies you can confidently fish for trout, anywhere they swim.

These are some of most effective fly fishing flies ever tied. Time proven patterns tied traditional style on competition grade hooks using all natural materials.

A Real Performer

Nice feeling rod took it to NZ in January and it performed really well. When I needed soft presentations it was perfect but still handled everything else. It was great to be able to pack it down and put it in my back pack for those long walk ins.

Mind Blown

I am mind blown. Not only is the rod amazing, but after I had an issue with a damaged section of my brand new rod, I contacted Epic and was treated like a real person who was jist trying to get back on the water. Within jist a few days they responded, resolved and mailed my my replacement parts. That kind of respect and customer service is second to none and I will gladly purchase from them again.
