The Barbless Yorkshire Dry Fly Selection is a selection of 4 styles of commonly used dry flies, here in Yorkshire. We are supplying 4 different styles of dry flies, 2 of each sizes 14 & 16. In total there are 16 flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging. These flies are great all-year-round flies, and work especially well for those picky summer trout and for taking grayling in September/October.
Descriptions and images of the flies can be found below:
Sweet William - Originally created in 1979 by Norman Greenwood (then tweaked by his Grandson) the Sweet William is one fly that he will always be remembered for. An evolution of the John Storey, another famous North Yorkshire Fly, it gets its name from the hackle used. Our selection contains two each of sizes 14 and 16.
John Titmouse - Another fantastic Yorkshire dry fly, this is especially good for Grayling! Tied in a similar style to the famous John Storey (with the 'sail-like' wing), this is an excellent dry fly in the smaller sizes throughout the summer months. Our selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 16.
John Storey - This fly, named after a river keeper on the Ryedale Anglers Club, is a favourite on the Yorkshire rivers. Tied with a peacock herl body, cock hackle and mallard wing sloping over the front of the fly. Great when used in early season, especially as a March Brown imitation. Our selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 16.
Brown Bi-Visible - Another fantastic 'Yorkshire' dry fly - it was originally popularised by our cousins across the pond - but it's supremely successful on the rivers and becks of Yorkshire. Tied in a similar style to the famous Loch Ordie, this is an excellent dry fly in the smaller sizes throughout the summer months. Our selection contains two each of sizes 14 & 16.
The above price includes 16 hand-tied flies supplied in our eco-friendly packaging.
