The barbless specialist dry fly selection. To complement our Dry Fly Selection we have added this specialist selection of dry flies. These are designs which, over the last few years have proved themselves in the fish catching stakes. Some are generic patterns which represent numerous flies, all can be used in the summer months to catch those most wary fish.
These flies are all great imitations (all tied on barbless hooks - of course!). In total there are 16 flies supplied in a free 8-compartment fly box. All of these flies are hand tied using barbless hooks, in sizes 14 and 18 using quality materials. Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery, to anywhere in the world.
Descriptions and images of the flies can be found below (should you want to buy the flies individually, please click on the fly titles):
Jingler. An imitation of the Large Dark Olive, this spider like fly is fished dry and sits just in the meniscus. Can be used in either early or late season, one of the new generation of flies. This selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 18.
Split-Wing Blue Winged Olive. With a slim quill like body and CdC split wings, these really do imitate the Blue Winged Olive and are ideal during afternoon hatches. With the wings tied in a slight 'V' formation, these sit just right on the water surface. This selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 18.
IOBO Humpy (It Oughta Be Outlawed). One of the best named flies around! The IOBO Humpy was originally designed and tied by Jack Tucker of Pennsylvania, USA. Very simple to tie (using a single CdC feather), floats like a cork and is deadly. This selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 18.
John Storey. This fly, named after a river keeper on the Ryedale Anglers Club, is a favourite on the Yorkshire rivers. Tied with a peacock hurl body, cock hackle and mallard wing sloping over the front of the fly. This selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 18.
The above price includes 16 hand-tied specialist dry flies with a free 8-compartment fly box. We now offer the option to upgrade to a Premium Silicone Fly Box for an extra £6, for details of the box we offer see here.
