The barbless Mayfly Taster Selection is a selection of the flies to imitate the lifecycle of the Mayfly (emerger, stillborn, dun & spinner). Think of it as an 'amuse-bouche' of the fly fishing world. We are supplying these as a taster selection, giving you a few of our wide range of mayflies, allowing you to see which work best on your waters. In total there are 10 flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging. All of these flies are hand-tied using barbless hooks, in sizes 10 and 12 using quality materials. Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery.
Descriptions and photo's of the flies in our taster selection can be found below, any of these flies can also be bought individually, just click on the link in the fly name:
Yellow Silhouette Mayfly. A yellow version of the popular silhouette style of mayfly, with a large Mohican, apply floatant to this and your fly will float all day. A great pattern for those early hatches. This selection contains one each of sizes 10 & 12.
Mohican Mayfly. TA detached body mayfly imitation, super buoyant and tied to exacting standards. This fly has very short wings, this helps reduce leader-twist when casting. Make sure you have plenty of these, the trout love them! The most effective Mayfly imitation when spinners are on the water. This selection contains one fly of size 10.
Stillborn Mayfly. Slightly darker in colour to the spinner, some mayflies die as soon as they hatch. Again (as in the spinner above) these are an easy target for trout, sometimes they actively target these in preference to the hatching flies. In which case these are the go-to flies. This selection contains one each of sizes 10 & 12.
Olive Mayfly. This is a wet mayfly pattern (e.g. it is fished slightly under the surface). These flies are extremely popular when fishing on Stillwaters (especially the Irish lochs). This selection contains one each of sizes 10 & 12.
White Silhouette Mayfly. A white version of the popular silhouette style of mayfly, with a large Mohican, apply floatant to this and your fly will float all day. A great pattern for those early hatches. This selection contains one fly of sizes 10.
Thomas Mayfly. The classic spent Mayfly imitation. This fly is tied with a yellow detached body, sparse long hackle and super flexible wings (so it does not twist your leader as much) and the signature tail. One of the most effective Mayfly imitations on an evening as the fish are hoovering up the spent mayflies. This selection contains one each of sizes 10 & 12.
The above price includes 10 hand-tied mayflies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging.
