FLY: The Next In The Series - Launching Today

Small Streams & Small Flies ...

I'd like to kick off this email by first thanking all of you who put your trust in us and bought the first two in our FLY Series - they have been really well received - so much so, that we've had to reprint them 3 times so far, and counting ...

We've had some really positive feedback on them (which we've incorporated into this next in the series):

This 3rd in the series tackles a situation that we all face when fishing in the warmer summer months - successful summer fishing on smaller streams, especially when tackling tricky fish with smaller flies:

Written and produced in conjunction with FlyFishMedia (think of them as the educational arm of Barbless Flies, as we run both of these sites).

Summer is the prime time for being out and about on the water - although it's often not the best time for catching fish, what with the reduced water levels and flows (and oxygen levels in the water dropping). So how do you approach fishing in these conditions - especially on smaller streams?

I believe the answer to this is more about watercraft and utilising different searching techniques to get the most out of your day - after all, our fishing time is precious! 

That's why we did a bit of research and found that whilst there are lots of fishing books out there, there aren't any dedicated to these conditions - so we made that our goal for this 3rd in the series of our handy pocket guides:

We're super proud to present to you the 3rd in a series of pocket-sized books at pocket-money prices (only £9.99) - all about Small Streams & Small Flies:


Please Note: If you are a retailer and thinking "I like the look of those", please get in touch - we'd like them to be available to as wide an audience as possible.

We've taken a subject within Fly Fishing - in the case of this 3rd in the series "Small Streams & Small Flies" - donned our budgie smugglers and done a deep dive into it:

This book, written by us and co-published by FlyFishMedia, contains a detailed analysis of how to approach fishing in smaller streams using smaller flies. Chapters include:

  • Watercraft
  • The Short Line Dry Fly
  • Leader Design
  • The Duo
  • Equipment Choices

Book Details:

Number of Pages - 78
Format - A6 (10.5cm x 14.8cm)
Price - £9.99

In this book, you will discover the techniques, flies, watercraft and how to approach fishing in smaller streams and rivers.

This book also discusses the type of conditions you can expect to face on small streams and the various tips, tricks and techniques used the fish them.

We've also included leader configurations specifically designed for use on small streams with smaller flies.

Please Note: This is a physical book, printed in English.

We are hoping that these will be as well received as the first two in the series, but just to be on the safe side, we've done an initial limited print run of 200, so if you would like one of the first editions, grab yours now.

We hope you enjoy reading (and collecting them) as much as we have researching and putting them together.

Go on, you know you want to!
