Many anglers dream there whole life of heading to New Zealand to catch a monster brown trout. That’s why we teamed up with Fulling Mill Signature Tier and guide Ronan Creane to bring you a range of his proven patterns for New Zealand. Whether caught on top or sub-surface, his range of patterns will have you covered for just about every situation you may encounter.
Ronan Creane’s Willow grub imitation. This is a key pattern for fishing in NZ when the natural is present. Simple, and perfectly imitative.
A Cicada pattern from Ronan Creane. It works great as a stand alone dry when the naturals are present or to use as an indicator dry fly.
A Cicada pattern from Ronan Creane. It works great as a stand alone dry when the naturals are present or to use as an indicator dry fly. This is tied the same as the other version, just offered in a green coloration for when the green cicadas are about.
A subtle indicator fly from Ronan Creane. This will easily hold up small nymphs for the classic “New Zealand Dropper” presentation. This fly floats really well and is easy to keep track of with the pink post. You’ll be sure to clearly see all your takes with it, but it won’t put fish off.
We’ve added three new colorations of Ronan’s proven Possum Streamer. Tied with a marabou tail and a possum body, this pattern has great movement and profile. These new versions add an extra pop of color on the collar that act as a great trigger.
A key pattern for sight casting to sighted fish feeding on nymphs just sub surface or in slow water. It’s subtle and simple, which will trick even the most picky of fish. This is a must have pattern if fishing in New Zealand.
