Barbless Streamers. We have a selection of barbless streamers, specially tied for rivers (they are also good for lake/reservoir stillwater fishing), ideally targeting those larger fish in the river who predate on fry.
These Streamers are all tied on size 8 and 10 barbless hooks with a weighted head. The head and eyes are then covered in epoxy resin to make the fly tough and durable. These streamers are tied to be slimmer in profile to the normal flies you see and are fantastic imitations of small fry. These are great fished in the margins with a slow jerky retrieve or deep on an intermediate line and short leader. Give them a whirl through those weir pools!
We have teamed up with Richard Wheatley (the oldest fly box maker in the world) to supply our Streamer Selection on one of their 3-compartment streamer boxes.
These flies are all tied on very strong barbless size 8 & 10 hooks. This selection comes with 6 streamers (3 different patterns, 2 of each sizes 8 and 10).
We only have a small number of these selections available. If the demand is there we will have more tied and offer them alongside our other river/stillwater/reservoir selections.
Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery.
Descriptions and photo's of the flies can be found below:
Perch Streamer - The Perch Streamer is a close imitation of the perch fry, tied with a white/black/green body and black stripes. This selection contains 1 each of sizes 8 and 10.
Olive Streamer - The Olive Streamer is a generic imitation of the fry found in the darker coloured rivers, tied with a black/green/white body and pearl flash. This selection contains 1 each of sizes 8 and 10.

Note: Should the "Tree Trout" steal any of your flies, I am happy to sell flies individually to allow you to top up your box. Please contact us with details of your order, and we will email you an invoice. These streamers can be bought individually for £3 per fly.
The above price includes 6 hand-tied barbless streamers with a free 3-compartment Richard Wheatley streamer box.
