We Fly Fish offers great trout fishing in Surrey. We match our fishing tactics to the seasons and imitate insects and small fish that are primary food sources for the trout at the time. This can vary during the day, when a hatch of aquatic flies can bring the trout to the surface looking for an easy meal. Spring to autumn brings the best dry fly trout fishing in Surrey fishing, and some of our waters hold the Mayfly whose hatch in May to June is often seen as the highlight of the season. In the winter, trout often feed on small fish fry, attacking the shoals and providing great sport on flies imitating escaping or injured fry. Successful trout fishing in Surrey requires understanding the natural environment in which they live, and ‘matching the hatch’ to select and present an appropriate fly.
