Andy Taylor takes a look at Turrall’s Chub Flies By Dominic Garnett
Fishing for coarse fish has become increasingly popular over the years especially in the summer months when the trout in our stillwater fisheries just switch off. Chub are one species, which will put a bend in your river or stillwater rod, and summer is a good time to target them with big juicy dries. The six patterns in the Dominic Garnett Chub range, come in a blister pack from Turrall. They offer plenty of kick and movement and can be twitched or pulled across the surface or fished static as you would your standard dries. Knowing that these patterns have come from someone with the experience that Dom has fills you with confidence that you have the right tools for the job. Each pattern has a descriptor on the reverse of the packet to help explain more about each fly.
These are great looking terrestrials that have plenty of kick and life that you know will draw those summer chub to the surface. So when the trout fishing is tough why not try for the chub with one these surface patterns?
