We at Angling Active have made our very own International Fly Gauge for competition anglers so you can ensure your fly complies with competition specifications.
Under the rules of the Scottish National Trout Fly Fishing Championship, a fly must comply with the following specifications. The hook shall be single or double, provided that in the case of a double hook, the angle between the bends does not exceed 90 degrees and when viewed from the side, the bends lie one behind the other.
Fly irons will measure not more than five-eighths of an inch overall, including the eye. The overall length of the fly shall not exceed fifteen-sixteenths of an inch. Fly dressings may include beads provided these beads are buoyant. Attractor chemicals and the use of light emitters to flies are debarred.
This small plastic tag provides a five-eighths of an inch measurement for your fly hook (iron) and we have the fifteen-sixteenths of an inch measurement for measuring the overall length of your fly. We have included semi-transparent images of a fly and a hook in these measurement sections as an example.
The Angling Active International Fly Gauge tag includes our logo and with the slogan “When I’m Fishing I’m Happy”. There is a pre-cut hole for attaching to a key ring, your fly vest or zinger etc. Sold individually.
