Our Fathead Perdigon's are tied for us by Stan (of Gourmet Flies fame) and he has really come up with the goods this time. These perdigons are much heavier than the normal perdigons, and are ideal for fishing on the faster/deeper runs and riffles (ideal for swollen rivers). They are tied on a Size 18 wide gape hook using a quality 3mm tungsten bead (98% tungsten).
A perdigon fly is usually a beaded fly tied with thread on a small hook, the thread is then coated with a resin to make a slim (bullet shaped) profile. It is believed that these flies were originally introduced by the Spanish competition anglers, however everyone should have them in their fly boxes. Because of their size (being small), they are ideal flies to use on rivers which see lots of anglers, fish are less wary when feeding on smaller insects.
Perdigon nymphs are generally used in the faster stretches of water, due to their slim, smooth profiles, they sink very quickly and can get to the river bed quickly. This allows you longer drifts each time you cast.
Our Fathead Perdigons have :
- A luminous and translucent body
- Quality Tungsten bead (3mm) on a size 18 wide gape hook
- A fully varnished body that allows it to sink fast for a light fly.
These flies are only available individually in size 18. Just click on "add to cart" and then adjust the quantity in your cart.
