Our Early & Late Season Selection
We have produced a selection of flies which are equally at home in the Early Season (March/April) and Late Season (September/October). These are mainly spider patterns (with a nice olive imitation included for the afternoon hatch). We supply two of each fly in two sizes, in total there are 16 flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging All of these flies are tied using barbless hooks, in sizes ranging from 14 to 16 using quality materials.
Descriptions and photos of the flies can be found below:
Snipe & Purple - A great sparse spider pattern for the early/late season. Fished on a long leader teamed up with the Waterhen Bloa & Endrick Spider, these can be deadly. Dressed in appropriate sizes and weights, the Snipe & Purple can be fished successfully throughout the season. This selection contains two each, of sizes 14 & 16.
Endrick Spider - A version of the Endrick Spider with a tungsten bead, teamed up with the other spider patterns will allow you to search all levels of water simultaneously, great when fishing "down and across". This selection contains two each, of sizes 14 & 16.
Waterhen Bloa - Generally thought to imitate the Large Dark Olive, the Waterhen Bloa is tied with yellow silk and natural mole fur and a stiff moorhen hackle. Again, teamed up with the other spiders in this selection it can be deadly. This selection contains two each, of sizes 14 & 16.
JT Olive - A dry fly imitation of a hatch Olive. Tied with a mole fur body, Coq de Leon tail and a CdC hackle. This fly can be used in all seasons, there's nothing better than this on a warm spring (or autumn) day, on its own with a tapered leader during an Olive hatch, just make sure to use some powder floatant on the CdC and it will float all day. This selection contains two each, of sizes 14 & 16.
The above price includes 16 hand-tied early & late season trout flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging.
