Simon Robinson is an expert on both river and lakes, many of his fly patterns can be found throughout our entire fly range from our Barbless Tactical flies to Attractor patterns. Simon has fished the river Swale for many years, we couldn't think of anyone better to give their opinion on fly choice for this venue.
