The Deershucker Selection from Barbless Flies is a selection of emerger patterns, especially successful in both rivers and stillwaters in the early and midseason (in sizes 14 and 16). Our selection includes 16 Deershucker fly patterns in various sizes. These are ideal for fishing those spring hatches when the fish are starting to rise freely. In total, there are 16 flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging. All of these flies are tied using barbless hooks, on lightweight size 14 and 16 hooks. Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery, to anywhere in the world.
As you can see the patterns are quite 'rough and ready'. Similar by design to the Deer Hair Emerger, the key to this style of fly is in the rough body and the deer hair used - it has to be hair from the winter coat of the animal as this is more buoyant due to the increased amount of air contained within each strand (each strand of deer hair is hollow and is a great insulator).
The key to fishing this style of pattern is how you treat the fly when dry - just apply a little floatant to the tips of the deer hair - both front and back. This will sit the fly in the surface film of the water, you need the fly to sit so you can only see the tips of the deer hair on the water surface.
What better way to spend those idyllic fly fishing afternoons & evenings as the weather starts to warm, than fishing emerger patterns. We have created this selection of Deershuckers which work perfectly on both rivers and stillwaters.
