Foam Hawthorn

When it comes to fly fishing this is one fly that works. If you're fly fishing for river or lake fish then you need this dry fly.

With the advent of warmer weather, we often see an abundance of insects but for me, the hawthorn fly is the pick of the TERRESTRIAL bunch.

This clumsy flyer will often end up in the water and the trout absolutely love them!

My Hawthorn is a simple tie but it is very effective both on lakes and on rivers!

Long story short

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
