Picasso Perdigon Selection

Regular price £20.00

The Barbless Picasso Perdigon Selection, our friend Stanislas Freyheit has tied a special selection of barbless Picasso Perdigon nymphs for us. Here we present this selection of 8 barbless Picasso Perdigon flies in a free slimline fly box and as always we offer free delivery to anywhere in the world.

Perdigon flies were developed approximately 6 years ago by Spanish competitors and are used in clear, fast flowing rivers. These flies have tungsten bead heads and thin bodies, made of thread and tinsel, they are then covered with a UV resin to provide durability and a very slim profile which allows a very fast sink rate compared with the classic beaded nymphs. The lighter coloured perdigons are for very clear waters with light bottoms and cream or light olive rocks and sand. The darker nymphs are used when the water is cloudy or in high flows

Weight & Tungsten Equivalence:

Each of these flies weighs 0.15g. This is equivalent to the weight of a 2.8mm tungsten bead.

How to use them:

Czech Style

  • Use a long and sensitive rod in size #2 -#4 of 10' or 11'
  • Generally to be fished in a team of 2 nymphs on a thin leader ( Czech type of leader ), the heavy nymph should be on the point and the smaller on a dropper
  • Droppers should be of maximum 12-15cm and the distance between flies should be aprox 50cm
  •  

    French Style

  • Use a sensitive rod from size #2 up to #5 of 9-10'
  • We would recommend just used one small nymph
  • Your leader should be of 3 to 4.5m, a classic tapered nymph with parallel tip of aprox 60cm to allow a fast sinking rate for the nymph
