Aphid Selection

Regular price £18.00

The Barbless Aphid selection.

During the warmer summer weather with low flows and even lower rivers, most of the fish during the day will head for cover. This will usually be in deep pockets, undercut banks and under their favourite overhanging trees/bushes. When they are hanging out under trees and bushes they are in the perfect spot for opportunistic meals of terrestrials which fall from the vegetation. During the summer months there's lots of aphid activity on the leaves and these regularly get blown onto the water. This is when you should break out the small dry flies and longer leaders.

Here we present a selection of 16 barbless Aphids, The Aphid family of flies is one which should be in all river anglers fly boxes for the summer. This selection comprises of 4 different patterns (in 2 sizes - sizes 20 and 24's).

NOTE: These flies are tied on very small hooks (sizes 20 and 24's) and will only take tippet diameters which are 0.12mm and below.
