This month may be cold and the fishing may be scarce, but it can still be a pretty exciting time to be a fly fisherman. Planning a year’s worth of trips, whether they’re down the street or halfway around the world, this is when the excitement starts to build up for the whole season. Maybe you’re even tying up flies to fill up all your flyboxes for the season so you can just focus on fishing once it gets warm again. Or if you’re really lucky, you could already be fishing somewhere warm and toasty. Hopefully you don’t feel too badly for the rest of us.
No matter where you’re fishing or what you’re fishing for this season, Postfly’s January boxes are coming in hot, ready to warm up the start of the year with some fish. Find out what came in this month’s boxes below and if you haven’t joined The Postfly Tribe yet, click here to sign up.
With the perfect mixture of classics and innovative new patterns, the January trout fly selection in the latest Postfly Box is going to help you get on the fish. Even if they’re sitting low and eating slow, these flies will convince them to eat.
Sure the water is cold, but warm water fish still have to eat all winter. Even if they’re barely moving down there, they’re still likely to strike your fly if you present the right one the right way. Not only do we include the names of your flies, we also tell you when to throw each pattern to double the chances of hooking up.
No matter the conditions out there on the saltwater flats, a shrimp pattern is a proven staple for Winter fly fishing, so we gave you a few different options. Whether you want to go subtle and natural with the pearl Soule Shrimp or add a flash of color, these flies are ready to work a flat.
