UK Upwing Flies – Match the Hatch Guide

Fishtec fly fishing upwings header
Our illustrative guides are designed to help you ‘match the hatch’ and catch more trout and grayling on British rivers.

This upwing fly chart will help you identify the most common Ephemeroptera species on UK rivers, and recommend a tried and tested imitation – as used by the Fishtec team.

All recommended fly patterns are based on the new range of Caledonia single flies, available from the Fishtec fly tackle collection.

Remember to check out our other river fly fishing guides, including sedges and terrestrials.
