Fly fishing in the Taurus Mountains

Hi
My husband and I are off on holiday to Side in 2 weeks, this will be our 7th visit.
My husband always does a bit of fishing from the jetty of the hotel, but this year has booked a days fly fishing in the Taurus Mountains,

I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience of this, mainly what type of flies to take, what type of bugs are popular there?

All info would be very much appreciated x

Thanks H x

Re: Fly fishing in the Taurus Mountains

I haven't had chance to get my fly rod out yet and it's not a form of fishing commonly used here, so you may struggle to get local advice. I would suggest he comes with a good selection of dries and nymphs and a trout spoon, then, if he's lucky enough to catch one, he can use the spoon to see what they are feeding on and match-up from his collection. If he's fishing a stocked lake, then a good selection of the usual lures for rainbows should work.

Re: Fly fishing in the Taurus Mountains

I know nothing about fly fishing but for the last few years there has been very reasonably priced trout available in Turkey so my assumption would be there is a lot of trout farms around.
Just an observation.

He should seek advice from the trip organiser. It will be influenced by where he is being taken and they should know what will work.

The trout fishing improves in some local rivers after heavy rain when the fish are washed out of the tanks in the Fish Farms! Many of the rivers are fished-out by netting, poison and explosives.
