The Barbless Bloodworms (we love an alliteration). Welcome to the Barbless Bloodworm Selection. This is a selection of 16 barbless bloodworms, comprising 2 different patterns (in 2 sizes). The Apps Bloodworm and Pinkie. These flies are tied to be very small (using the finest diameter flexi-floss we could find) to imitate as near as possible the natural. We know that some of you like to customise your flies, so these are tied with extra long legs (which you can either fish as they are, or cut down to a size you think is best).

The one thing you will see with these flies, is how small and slim they are. 

Apps Bloodworm. This extremely popular fly is tied using two lengths of vivid red flexi-floss. These are tied with no added weight, meaning the resemblance to the real thing is uncanny.  

Pinkie. Very similar to the Apps Bloodworm, this is tied with two lengths of vivid Pink flexi-floss and fished in exactly the same way.
Both of these patterns are best fished on a sinking line and shortish leader. Once on the bottom of the lake bed, make a slow (but jerky) retrieve and wait for the take! These flies imitate the bloodworm which is found in the lake beds, when disturbed they move in exactly the same way as the flexi-floss.

Note: Should the "Tree Trout" steal any of your flies, I am happy to sell flies individually to allow you to top up your box (if we still have any in stock). Please contact me using this link with details of your order, and I will email you a invoice. These flies can be bought for £0.80 per fly.

This selection contains sixteen assorted sizes ranging from 12 to 18 of the above flies. The price includes 16 hand-tied barbless bloodworms 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.

We currently have these fly selections in stock and will ship these to you as soon as we receive notification of your payment, generally if a payment is made in the morning your flies will be with you the very next day. All products from Barbless Flies are shipped free of charge.
