"They are truly a work of art. I don’t know if I can bring myself to fish them!” - Dave Richards (A very happy customer)
Another stunning Selection from our Artisan range of patterns - The Artisan Javi Nymph `selection.
Now that Winter is finally making an appearance and the frosts are starting to become more regular, the Grayling will have started to shoal up in the deeper pockets. With the rivers generally higher than normal and the flow often stronger, you're going to need something a bit heavier if you want to target the Grayling in these conditions. Enter The Artisan Javi Selection, these Grayling (and Trout) nymphs are absolutely deadly!
This selection is so named because of the distinctive teardrop tungsten bead used in the tyings (called a Javi bead). Javi beads are tapered tungsten beads and solve the problem of making a smooth body-to-head transition behind the bead. Using this type of bead creates a more naturally shaped fly and also positions weight along the whole length of the fly, once coupled with a wide-gape jig hook (in this case a VMC 7077 Jig hook), these flies are deadly in deep flowing rivers.
These patterns are especially effective on rivers where you need to get down deep quickly. So they will be invaluable on some of the deeper and faster-flowing rivers here in the UK.
These flies are heavy, weighing in at between 0.6g and 0.7g each.
Our Artisan Javi Selection contains four different patterns:
- Hare's Ear Javi Nymph
- Pheasant Tail Javi Nymph
- Purple Javi Nymph
- Spanish Bullet Javi Nymph
This selection contains 2 each of the above nymphs. We currently have these fly selections in stock and will ship these to you as soon as we receive notification of your payment, generally, if a payment is made in the morning your flies will be with you the very next day.
