Fishing without Limits!  Welcome to Fly For Coarse, your one stop site for a host of inspiring resources on this growing phenomenon in the fishing world. This is fishing how it should be: intimate, direct and visually thrilling. Whether you enjoy casting large pike flies, fly fishing for carp, chub or even gudgeon and dace on the fly, you’ve come to the right place.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2017 WINNERS!
Our panel awarded James Macdonald first place for his fantastic urban barbel from London’s River Wandle, tempted on a Crazy Charlie. The story (described by Matt Hayes as “off the wall and absolutely inspirational!”) features on the Turrall Flies blog. See our 2017 gallery page for all your entries and a list of prize winners!

Fly fishing for barbel

Angus MacDonald had this cracking 9lb barbel on a Crazy Charlie. By the time he’d landed it he had quite an audience!

Fly for Coarse represents a different kind of competition and fishing experience. It is about the journey and the excitement, not just the biggest fish. We’re interested in your fly patterns, ideas and battles on light tackle. We’re all about the “how” rather than “how much did it weigh?” We want your stories, your catches and favourite flies. What will your next target be?
