This pattern is tied with the hackle at the rear of the hook, thereby partly masking the hook point. It can be used on streams or rivers where bushes overhang the water and catch the fly. The theory is that the hook bounces off the branches and the fly falls gently onto the water.
This pattern is tied with a genetic hackle at the bend that helps the fly sit upright on the water. The set of 8x flies are in sizes 10, 12, 14 and 16 (one pair of each size). All are available in black hackle, green body and pearl green rib on up eye hooks.
Price for 8 x flies is £8.50, including postage. The flies are contained in a robust box for safety in transit. These flies have been tied by JOHN for Challnege Flies.
