Enter Your Catch for 2017

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 2016 Winners!
Our panel awarded John Tyzack first place for his epic fly-caught double figure barbel, tempted on a Scruffy Hare’s Ear and landed on a 5-weight. Other entries included cracking chub, carp, bream and many other species- credit to all who got involved! See our 2016 gallery page for all your entries and a list of prize winners!

John Tyzack had this stunning 12-08 barbel on a nymph.

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 to hear about your stories, your catches and favourite flies. Virtually all species will take a fly; what will your next target be?

Our top prize for the year is an amazing Peak Rotary Vice! A strong contender for the best value professional quality vice on the market (RRP £169.99), these are built to last a lifetime, with many top tools &  accessories available.
