Geo-Intelligent Fly Selection

A New FREE Web Service is Launched for Fly Anglers by Barbless Flies

United Kingdom – May 10, 2018 – – Geo-Intelligent Fly Selection

We’ve all been there – you get to the water’s edge and just tie on the same fly which worked the last time you were out – hoping that the fish will still be interested. Well, how about using a little bit of modern technology to help you decide which fly to use?

With that exact scenario in mind, Barbless Flies have been working on a project for the last 8 months and after extensive user testing, it’s finally ready to release. It’s a website (accessible on any device) which shows you which flies should be hatching on your river (or stillwater) based on your location, date and time of day. It retrieves all of these details automatically from your phone/tablet/computer and then references them against a database behind the scenes, to display:

  • Insects which should be hatching at that time of day, for that month, in your location (for both rivers and stillwaters)
  • For each insect it gives you details of the fly imitation to use, including hook sizes and photos
  • You even get the option to have the results emailed to you

The website is being launched with the support of the Wild Trout Trust, as Barbless Flies assist with best practice catch and release. The service covers England, Scotland, Wales, Northern & Southern Ireland, and best of all, it’s free of charge (with no annoying adverts)!
