6th June UPDATE: We have a winner! the Winner of the 2nd #fivefreeflyfriday is @Mnmflytying. I’ll send the flies out over the weekend Michael Keep an eye out on the blog for the next Five Free Fly Friday give away!
Little bit late posting this, due to being away with the family yesterday (not good, late on the second ever FFFF – “must try harder, see me” as my English teacher would say).
This time, just as the fish seem to be coming up to the surface, I’m giving away five weighted nymphs!
The five free flies for this friday are copper headed, hares ear with partridge hackle nymphs
- Hook: Size 10 Kamasan B160 short shank (de-barbed)
- Tail & Hackle: Olive Partridge
- Body: Hares Ear
- Rib: Fine pearl tinsel
- Bead: Copper 3.8mm
- Thread: Brown Cobweb
- Thorax: Peacock Hearl
This fly is great for exploring those fast riffles, and for sitting beneath last weeks fly as part of a duo setup. The hook is a size 10 – but short shank, this gives you a nymph similar in length to a size 14, but enough hook gape to ensure the bead doesn’t get in the way of hooking the fish.
Start tweeting/commenting now to have a chance of winning – winner announced Thursday 6th June 🙂
