This is the culmination of many ideas and emails between myself and my good friend Peter Varring Jensen of Denmark who actually tied the flies and took the photographs.

Hook:Mustad Shrimp C47S D, sizes 4-6
Materials:White fluffy wool
Tying thread: Danville's .006 monofilament [Fine]
Superglue

The Bread Fly.

1. Cut enough wool so that you have 2 bundles of 15-20 pieces about 3-4 long each


2. Place the hook in the vice, and tie in the thread about halfway down the shank. GLUE. Cut off excess thread.


3. Tie in one of the bundles of wool at the middle. Use to left hand thumb and index finger to distribute the pieces equally around the hookshank. Make 4-5 TIGHT turns to secure the wool. GLUE


4. Stroke the pieces of wool pointing towards the hook eye back towards the hook bend


5. Tie in the second bundle of wool exactly in front of the first one, using the same method.


6. Whipfinish in front of the second bundle, and cut off the thread. GLUE


7.Trim off any long strands of wool. Brush the fly with the “rough side of a piece of Velcro.


8. Hold all the wool in a bundle above the hookshank, and cut them at the line shown


9. The completed bread fly


As an addition to the standard bread fly, we have also come up with the idea of adding a imitation crust to the fly. See pic below.

Should be noted that this is also an excellent mullet pattern Wink Bothers me, but can`t find out who originally tied the egg-fly(the fly that "laid the path towards bread")?

Cheers,
Peter

Yes, I think the Hovis flies start hatching around the end of May. Do you know of a bread fly pupa or nymph pattern for those days when fish are taking emergers?











Very Happy

You may mock, heathens....we have further ideas in the pipeline including 'brown bread' flies, 'bread roll' flies, 'breadcrumb' flies and 'whole slice of bread' flies.

The one is that is causing some grief is the 'bread n' cheese' fly...

Used a very sparse pattern like the one tied some 20 odd years ago on kempton park ressy, my cousin flick a fag butt into the water and a trout took it , he snipped a few strands of wool from his jumper and bang was into fish , so we all tried it and to put lightly we , took at least 60 fish amonst us.Kempton is closed now Embarassed

A bread fly.
I’ve searched in the dictionary of trout flies and I cant for the life of me find a reference to this concoction.
I suppose this fly would work best when fished with a sight bob or float.
In fact, If casting was a problem with a bread fly and float I would strongly suggest that a spinning rod and rear drag reel be used.

I’ve seen a lot of weird stuff in the fly fishing world that I thought was taking the sport down a different road but this has to be the last straw.

If anyone is desperate enough to catch fish by using a bread fly I think they should reconsider the sport they have chosen. Bread is allowed in coarse fishing so I don’t see the point in creating a fly that represents a bit of loaf when you could just as easily coarse fish.

Bread, Floats and Elastic leaders all belong to coarse fishing.
I hope they all go back to where they belong.

So lures that should belong in spinning as they're not strictly flies?

Should we not be all encompassing when it comes to fly fishing. Rather than asking "why can you do that" should we not be asking "why shouldn't you be able to do that"?

No Chris.
Enough is enough.
Anyone can fish what they like.
Bread, Maggots, Sweat corn, Boilies and all the other coarse stuff.
When will the fly angler change his reel to a rear drag system.
It make sense as its easier to cast.
Then we could design rods that would suit the rear drag reels.
Everyone would then be happy.

Ill stick to what’s left of the art of fly fishing.

The art of fly fishing has been going "downhill" ever since people started fishing downstream for fish, using patterns that don't imitate something the fish aren't feeding on, using lures rather than insect imitations etc.

Times change and if someone enjoys what they are doing then I can't see the problem with it.

Who is it upsetting?

Chris.
Go buy yourself a spinning outfit and fish Rutland with it.
Cast in a dead bait if you like.
Buy a big bag of bubble floats and a tin of sweat corn.

As I said, I’ll stick to what’s left of fly-fishing..

I still don't understand where this line is drawn betweebn fly fishing and not fly fishing. Do you have a clear definition you could put forward?

Do you have a line between Coarse fishing and fly fishing.
