Lure Fishing with Turrall Dropshot Minnow Flies

Normally I stay well clear of fly fishing as I have developed an ability to injure passers by at some distance, but this is not fly fishing strictly speaking. As the title suggests this is dropshot fishing with flies and the host is none other than Dominic Garnett a fisherman and author who is no stranger to mixing it up. As we don't have bass in this country perch is the next best thing and Dominic walks us through a couple of different techniques as well as the gear. If your looking for some of the flies check out Turrall Flies Or if you fancy a book by Dominic as Christmas Present to yourself check out (I get one every year for myself that way I don't care if just get underpants from the family)

This one of series of video from Haru834 one of my favourite youtube lure and video makers. Rather list all the videos here I strongly recommend you check out the rest of his work, there is no language barrier as most are silent films but yet manage to deliver the important information.
