Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Sedge $2.99
Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Sedge - Bob Wyatt's most celebrated trout flies. Bob Wyatt has fly-fished for trout in North America, Europe and New Zealand since the 1950s.  His book, Trout Hunting, challenged some conventional thinking regarding how trout work, and presented some fresh insights on why some great old flies continue to catch fish after a century or more of increasing fishing pressure.  The reason is that, contrary to much expert opinion, trout are not getting smarter.  If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout.   Over fifty years of fly fishing has convinced Wyatt that a few basic designs will cover almost any fishing situation, and in most cases will catch fish better than specific patterns created for the so-called ‘selective trout’.  The reason they work so well is because of the way a trout’s brain works.  These fly designs are based on the most important ‘triggers’ to a trout’s feeding response – a fly’s size, shape and posture in the water.  In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout’s food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation. Presentation is the key.  Well proven for fly fishing in New Zealand, with these flies you can confidently fish for trout, anywhere they swim. These are some of most effective fly fishing flies ever tied. Time proven patterns tied traditional style on competition grade hooks using all natural materials. - The World famous DHS - The only Dry Fly you will ever need to carry - Tied Exclusively for Swift under licence from Bob, these are the highest quality flies tied  using only the best materials on the very best Hanak barbless competition Hooks.

Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph $2.75
Fly Fishing Flies - Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph The most effective fly fishing flies ever tied. Time proven patterns tied traditional style on competition grade hooks using all natural materials. Highest quality flies tied using only the best materials on the very best Hanak barbless competition Hooks. These hooks are sticky sharp! Classic Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph Originally conceived and tied by Frank Sawyer MBE, an English River Keeper, the Pheasant Tail Nymph is one of the oldest of the modern nymphs. Frank devised the pattern for use on the chalkstreams of Southern England. He designed this nymph to imitate several species of the Baetis family, generally referred to as the 'olives'; it quickly became world famous. Our PTN is tied to our instructions as close to the original Sawyer ties as possible. Pheasant tail fibers and copper wire only, plenty of weight here. This classic generalist pattern replicates just about any nymph in the water column.  A proven fish catcher the world over. Imitates: EverythingDelivered in our classic tin fly box "Box - O - Flies"
Bead Head Hares Ear Nymph Bead Head Hares Ear Nymph
Bead Head Hares Ear Nymph $2.75
Fly Fishing Flies - Bead Head Hares Ear Nymph The most effective fly fishing flies ever tied. Time proven patterns tied traditional style on competition grade hooks using all natural materials. Highest quality flies tied using only the best materials on the very best Hanak barbless competition Hooks. These hooks are sticky sharp! Our take on the ubiquitous Hares Ear Nymph. Tied with a dulled low flash bead head,  spikey hare guard hairs and a hint of silver wire. Unlike most commercial ties we've done away with the second grade fluffy under hair and stuck with the good stuff - 100% out outer guard hairs. These are heavy bombers, if you want a fly with a slim profile that will get down and dirty very quickly this is it. Imitates:  This old pattern imitates a variety of aquatic life, including scuds, sow bugs, mayfly nymphs, and caddis larvae. Delivered in our classic tin fly box "Box - O - Flies"
