Fly fishing in Poland, can be very exciting, can be difficult and everything depends on a few factors. First the season, in early Spring in Poland can be very challenging.
The water is still very cold and usually not sufficiently clear. In this condition, I always recommend using streamers during those early-season days. I used to use dark colors and some fluorescent additives in the streamer fly.
When the season becomes much more wormer during summer fly fishing mainly starts. In this period of the Year, we can use all of the fly fishing techniques, dry flys, wet fly, nymphs and streamers.
I can say that technique which You choose depends mainly on your preferences, and slightly targets fish.
I am a big fan of classic wet fly fishing. A March brown (male as well as female, both with wings and without), a black Zulu, or a black Pennel can be very successful.
It is worth trying them as a dropper for example in a setup with a small streamer or as a classic double combination.
Nowadays flies that are worth keeping in your box almost anytime are certain types of nymphs. Personally, I am quite open, from one side I’m a big fan of simple patterns, on the other a very complicated woven pattern.
Which one is better, unfortunately, the answer is not simple and a thing that the best fly is that on the end of your leader and you trust them.
