The world's best flyfishing site.


Scrubby bush commonly used as hedges in the UK, the bush/tree can reach 5 meters in height and produces an abundance of small white or pink flowers in May. These flowers attract the Hawthorn fly in large numbers. This large black, clumsy fly with long trailing legs is highly regarded by the trout and can be imitated with a variety of black flies including the black gnat, hawthorn or just a bunch of black seals fur dubbed shaggily onto the hook.
