The Basic Trout Fly Box

We’ve put together a great list of flies for beginners to stock their box with. No need to make it complicated and get confused; check out the dozen flies hand-picked for success here in Georgia.

Just remember, while fly choice is important, presentation is the main key to success. We always say it’s the “how” more so than the “what.”

So save yourself some time wracking your brain over which fly to use.  Read Jeff’s article linked below and in the bio (might have to scroll to page 18), then use the time you saved to watch videos and read about drag free drifts, reading water, and how to put on more split shot! 


Your next great stop is the short video series at the Orvis Learning Center:


Good luck!
