The Barbless Iron Blue selection.
A selection of 20 barbless Iron Blue imitations, comprising 4 different patterns (in 3 sizes). The Iron Blue (a common name used by anglers to refer to three separate insects - Alainites muticus, Baetis niger and Baetis digitatus) is a small (no larger than 1cm) upwinged fly. Hatches of Iron Blue's usually start in early May and reach their peak during mid-May, dying down again until September when they hatch again.
