The Funky French Caddis

Barbless Flies

The Funky French Caddis

This nymph is tied to perfection (as is usual with any of Stan's flies) - and
he's been experimenting again! This is a slightly lighter caddis imitation, but
with a twist - a lovely creamy body topped with a variety of bead and collar
A great fly to try at this time of year. Caddis larvae are found in all of our
rivers and stillwaters, with grayling and trout of all kinds gorging on them as
they become dislodged in the heavy flows and higher water. Trundle one of
these along the river bed, or suspend one under a dry fly on your favourite
Stillwater/reservoir and hang on!

Let us we introduce you to Stan's Funky Caddis Selection which includes 6
different colour combinations:

Pink Funk Caddis
Fluorescent White Funky Caddis
Orange Funky Caddis
Lime Funky Caddis
Black Funky Caddis
Purple Funky Caddis
Each nymph is tied with a creamy translucent body of glass beads which is
then coated with a tough resin - making these nymphs very long-lasting. These
nymphs can imitate both the caddis nymph and do a very passable impression
of a maggot!
This Caddis nymph imitation is ideally used as a point fly in any nymphing
setup (and great for sight nymphing). Don't forget about using these on
stillwaters also (over half of the UK Caddis flies are found in stillwaters). These
Cased Caddis imitations are all tied on size 16 barbless hooks.
The tying specification for these nymphs is:

Fly Name: Funky Caddis
Hook Size: N°16 Medium-Heavy Wide Gape Barbless
Head Composition: Coloured Brass Bead
Body Composition: Polymerized Glass Beads with UV Coating
Latin Name: Trichoptera
Weight: Medium - 0.09g
We are only making these flies available as a selection of 18 (just click on any
of the fly images or buttons below to view more detailed images of each
individual nymph). This selection of 18 nymphs is priced at £36.00 - we do
understand these are at the pricier end of the spectrum for flies, but the quality
is outstanding.

We only have 20 selections available for sale - I'm keeping some to use
myself! So you will need to be quick!

Stay tuned to your emails on Saturday morning, as we have a great offer
for all of you who cannot make the British Fly Fair in person.

Until Saturday, tight lines.
