Mayfly Nymph Selection

Regular price £18.00

The barbless Mayfly Nymph Selection, is a selection of the flies to imitate the nymph stage of the Mayfly. We fished with these flies in May/June last year to test them out, and was very happy with the results. We supply two of each fly in two sizes (10's & 12's), in total there are 16 flies supplied in a free 8-compartment fly box. All of these flies are hand tied using long-shank barbless hooks, in sizes 10 to 12 using quality materials. Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery.

Spot them: The nymphs incubate in its silt burrow on the river bed for 2 years and in a morning will start swimming to the surface (generally before 1pm).

Expert skill: Use an 8ft to 9ft rod, along with a floating line and 8ft to 10ft of leader. Use a cut down 9ft tapered leader (use the last 5ft) and then 4ft of 5x tippet. Fish a large cream coloured Mayfly Nymph (the nymphs are up to 2.5cm long) so a size 10 or 12 is a good imitation.

Pro tip: Remember you are looking for sections of river which are below a slow running silty section and preferably where the river narrows. This funnel effect will act as a conveyor belt delivering the mayfly nymphs to the waiting trout. The better sized trout will be at the head of the pool, so steadily work your way up.
