The Barbless Rhyacophila (Caseless Caddis) Selection.

Rhyacophila are Caddis larvae - found in virtually all flowing water in the UK. It’s a "Caseless Caddis" - meaning it doesn’t build itself a case from the river bed. Very similar in style, size and form to a shrimp/scud these Caddis prefer shallow riffles and often get caught up in currents, making them easy pickings for Trout & Grayling. With the help of Stan (of Ceramic Flies) we have created this selection of Barbless Rhyacophila Larvae which should be one of your first patterns to use when searching a river. These flies have segmented bead bodies and tied with black dubbing heads (just like the real thing), then a coloured UV shell is applied, making them virtually indestructible! These rhyacophila larvae are specifically designed for UK rivers and are uncanny imitations of the natural invertebrates found throughout them.

Here we have a selection of 8 Rhyaco Larvae, four different patterns, two of each in size 12.

Each of the flies in the Barbless Rhyacophila Selection can now be bought individually. please click on the links below to purchase the flies individually (or click the "Add to Cart" button above to buy the selection at a discounted price):
