An ideal present for the Stillwater Fly Angler.

There are not many firsts in fly fishing - but this, we believe, is one of them. Essentially it is a journal to accompany you throughout your fly fishing year. Something you can annotate and make notes in, allowing you to refer back to in years to come - helping you ‘crack the code’ on those difficult days.

We’ve called it an Almanac as it takes its inspiration from a few different sources, think of it as a cross over between:

  • Old Moore’s Almanac - An annual publication that prophecies what will happen throughout the year - only this one is fly fishing related.
  • The Fly Fishers Entomology - A seminal publication from 1836 by Alfred Ronalds, the first to detail river fly life from the angler's point of view.
  • A Moleskine Diary - As used by Van Gogh, Picasso & Ernest Hemingway
The 2021 Stillwater Fly Anglers Almanac is a paperback with 350gsm covers, printed using high-quality uncoated paper (allowing you to easily jot any notes etc), it is roughly 100 pages long. To see the contents of the Almanac and example pages, please read towards the end of this page.


For each month in the fly fishing year - covering Stillwater trout - there are pages detailing hatch charts, fly imitation info and catch return/notes.

Here's an example of the page for July, this shows a calendar, a note on what to expect fishing wise, a hatch chart and some hints and tips for insects that should hatch in July and how best to imitate them:

 



The 2021 Stillwater Fly Anglers Almanac outlines which flies are expected to hatch and which flies to use to best imitate them. It follows the stillwater fly fishing year - starting in June 2021 (ending in May 2022) - detailing the hatches, flies and techniques to use for each month. Along with all the hatches and fly info, there's a whole host of other information, including specific insect info and even pages to jot down your notes and your catch return for each month.
Here's a quick video of the Almanac:
