    Hi there ryan,Good flies for lockwood would be :-
    DRY - black emergers with cdc,black or dark brown hoppers,adams,or small shipmans.
    LURES - cats whiskers,zonkers,damsels.
    I would also go with black buzzers,bloodworm and diawl backs fished with the floating line / inter' line.Just keep changing the time you let them sink down and a very slowly retreival untill you start getting fish.
    You can ask at the lodge at lockwood what flies have been catching,and i think they sell flies there,just purchase a few there.
    Good luck m8.

    They sell a wide range of flies up lockwood.

    2salmo has already pointed out the best flies for lockwood and its just a matter of changing flies until you find the fly/ depth that the fish are feeding at.

    I was up a few weeks ago and i did well on a black nomad although all the nomads work very well. I will be up again tommorow so ill report back on that.

    The flies that i have done best on are

    1.Klinkhamers in grey and brown ( size 12 - 16)Left static or slowly figured of 8 back
    2.Nomads, Black and dawsons (size 10) Fish them quite fast
    3.cats whisker and dawsons olive, fished fast or fished 3 feet under an indicator and left static
    4. Small cdc shipmans in olive, red or black. Slowly figure of 8 back
    5.Hoppers in size 10 - 16, black or red. Leave static or cast at rising trout
    6. Montana's, ptns and daiwl bachs. Fished slowly
    7. buzzers, various colours. Fish slowly or use an indicator and just let them drift in the breeze, keeping intouch with the line.

    All the people up there are happy to help and will suggest more flies for you to use

    Good luck ryan and i hope this helps you

    Not fished Lockwood for a couple of years, but would agree with the above - only thing I'd add would be something in case there are some sedge's coming off - deer hair sedges/ stimulators worked for me stripped across the surface in the late evenings, but I think it was maybe a bit later in the year than this....

    Sedges work well up there mart, but like you said its still a bit early for them. Nothing better than a warm October night when some sedges are coming off and fish are chasing them :happy:

    good stuff

    Daddy Long Legs could be worth having as well- especially with all the damp weather we've had.

    Ant flies work well at Lockwood

    Aye GGG, think it was August the year I fished it a few times, I could call in on my way home from Teesside to Scarborough - was the really hot summer (remember those!! :happy:) probably 2006? - was really only worth fishing the last hour before dark unless you were in a boat. Great sport for "the" hour, though, like turning a switch on!! Loads of chases & follows, probably half a dozen of those for every actual hook-up....

    we went up near the shop, just before the first bin. Most of the fish were on powerbait lifted around 2 feet off the bottom with a polyball.

    cheers dave, Just hope it runs into the winter sea fishing :yes:
