Specialist Duo Selection

Regular price £20.00

The Barbless Specialist Duo selection. We have put together something which we feel is rather special and not available from anywhere else. It's a bit from left field, but go with us on it! This selection is unique. We all know that fishing the duo can be deadly, but with barbless hooks you cannot effectively fish "New Zealand" style, we have come up with what we believe is a unique solution. We have tied the dry fly on a jig hook, which then presents the dry fly correctly when the dropper is tied to the eye of the hook. Our selection contains:

  • 2 styles of dry flies tied on jig hooks, so they present correctly when fishing the duo.
  • 4 styles of micro ceramic nymphs - these are size 20 micro nymphs.

Especially selected for fishing the Duo. In total there are 12 flies supplied in a free 8 compartment fly box. Descriptions and photo's of each fly can be found below:

Dry Flies:

Tied on quality lightweight barbless jig hooks, these dry flies are super floating sedge imitations, ideal for suspending the micro ceramic nymphs.

Super Floating Indicator Sedgehammer. This model of sedge fly is probably one of the best that imitate sedge flies. Our selection contains 1 each of size 10 & 14.

Tactical Sedge. A fantastic fly used when fishing rivers for trout. When the sedge flies are hatching then these flies should be fished static. In some conditions these flies are practically a stimulator and can be fished by inducing some movement in the fly. Our selection contains 1 each of size 10 & 14.

Micro Nymphs:

Tied for us by Stanislas Freyheit on quality barbless hooks in size 20, with a thick layer of Bug Bond resin, deeply polymerised under UV light, extra solid and extra smooth coating, non toxic. 

We supply these ceramic micro nymphs all in size 20's, their tungsten equivalent is:

  • Size 20 Ceramic = 0.4mm Lead Wire = 0.025g = Fly weight = 0.44g
  • For use with 5x tippet (0.15mm/0.006in) and thinner

Black/Olive Ceramic Micro Nymph. This nymph has an olive segmented body with a black head. This selection contains two each of size 20.
