We we are getting there and fish are still coming into our systems, it looks more promising certainly than last season. With that in mind I would like to show you a raft of different Francis style patterns that might just bring you that Autumn beauty. There are tungsten tubes, copper tubes, tungsten Coneheads all designed to fish at the required depth you want.
So we will start with the most common and deadly red Francis in its various disguises –
Also there are Black Francis which are used for clear water and low water conditions, again there are tungsten tubes, copper tubes, tungsten Coneheads. Also using black is a good way to pick up those hard to get fish that have seen a few flies.
Now we get down to the selected colours that catch on different conditions. Some colours that you might find strange have their day. Tweed specials over the last few years has been Pink and Amber. Olive green has been a huge success in clear and peaty water fishing in many countries.
These are as reliable and deadly late on in the season are a couple of shrimp patterns –
We hope we have helped you view all the Francis variations that we at Caledonia have for you.
