V32Posted on 31 May 2012 by Vincent
Everyone has their own favorite fly. Most of us even have a couple of favorite flies. Some flies simply catch a lot of fish in a lot of different circumstances. When it comes to nymphs my favorite fly is without a doubt the Simon Templer Nymph. When fishing for active trout in lakes and reservoirs I have a different favorite fly. It’s kind of a wet fly. My friends call it the Vincent’s 32. On our “home” trout water “De Ronde Bleek” this fly has accounted for several hundreds of big trout.
I fish this fly pretty fast. I fish it like a streamer. Because of the tiny bit of lead used in this fly it gets trough the surface immediately when it’s wet, but it doesn’t sink very fast. That way I can fish just beneath the surface for the actively feeding trout. Sometimes the trout want it slow, sometimes they want it really fast, so try to change your speed of retrieve if the trout don’t take the fly.
