Read Time: 1 MInute | Published: 2nd October 2023 | Author: Fulling Mill

This month we’ve released 2 new YouTube videos with Rob Edmunds. In them we dive deep into two critical stillwater fly fishing tactics: fishing snakes, and pulling. For you stillwater anglers out there, you can’t miss them!

In this video, Signature Tyer Rob Edmunds talks us through pulling tactics while reservoir fishing for trout on Draycote Water. On this day, he switched to fishing Boobies and Blobs after getting interest, but no commitment, when fishing snake flies. He talks us through the setup he uses for pulling flies, as well as the patterns he selects. Then we go over the thought process behind it, the retrieve, and some other general tips for stillwater fly fishing.

In this video, Fulling Mill Signature Rob Edmunds walks us through a morning session on Draycote water fishing snake flies for trout. This is an especially effective tactic for the front and back end of the fly fishing season on stillwaters, but can also produce throughout the year. If you’re looking to up your game while out fly fishing stillwaters for trout this year, there are some excellent tips from Rob in here. He covers things like presentation, retrieve, fly selection, leader setup, and a whole lot more!

You can find many articles on our blog by Rob Edmunds that cover a whole range of stillwater fly fishing tactics.

To help you find the best patterns for fishing on stillwaters right now, we put together a list of the ones that have been catching fish for us!
