The smallest version we have… A lightly dresed miniature conehead fly
10 millimetre long.
The right treble hook for this micro tube fly
Another special version of the Frances fly that we wouldn't be without at the river...
We’re a specialist company and we will go to great lengths to produce the flies exactly how we want them. This micro conehead version of the Frances tube fly is no exception – During low watwer periodes this iny fly has proven its worth on noumorous occasions – Due to the fact that this fly works with a very smal hook…you may not land all the salmon you hook-up with…but you will get some spectaculare bites when no one is catching fish
We’re mad about details at Fishmadman
The other tube Frances flies
The Frances fly was originally devised by the late UK fly tier Mr Peter Dean This was in 1968 The fly was a special commission job for his client Mr David Blythe who was about to embark on a journey to fish various salmon rivers on Iceland – The fly was a great success and this odd shrimp pattern has ever sins been a favoured fly on Iceland and at many other rivers in Europa.
We predict that this fantastic pattern with time also will become a favoured pattern with steelhead anglers on the West Coast of North America…
Right; An original Frances fly by the fly tiers that worked with Peter Dean – Or actually; it is the next generation of the Frances fly called; the Black Eyed Prawn – or The BEP. The BEP is almost identical to the Frances Fly – except for the two black beads attached to the top of the fly.
