Choosing Flies that Catch Fish with the SELFBACTD Method

Sep 26, 2020

What if you had a system that allowed you to quickly choose a fly that was actually going to work?

The SELFBACTD method is something I developed a while back, and one that can definitely assist in helping you choose the right flies, regardless where you are or what you're fishing for. By assessing a short list of factors, we can better consider the size, profile, colour and weight of the fly we are about to choose. 

The SELFBACTD Method looks something like this:

Species
Environment
Light
Food source
Behavioural tendencies
Angling pressure
Clarity
T
emperature
D
epth/Distance

I've fallen so in love with this formula that I even decided to write a book about it, which is almost done! More details on that in the near future...

 

 Enjoy!
