Snakelet Natural Black

n.b. See also PR6066, for the natural pearl coloured version of this fly

This new fly proved absolutely deadly from the Grafham bank in October/November 2016, accounting for nearly half of a total of 90+ fish in 6 visits! And we just know it's going to work everywhere else.

Tied with natural black mink, rather than a rabbit zonker strip, the fly measures approx. 6cms from the eye of the hook to the tip of the tail. The joint is soft, ultrafine Gelspun which has an amazing breaking strain of 20lbs. The connection is longer than the mink it supports when the latter is dry but 'just right' when it's wet and stretches a bit. Barbless hook.

This pattern is unweighted and has achieved great success when fished on the point with two nymphs on the droppers, retrieved with a steady figure of eight. A feature on this fly in action appeared in Total Flyfisher magazine December 2016.
More on order, probably arriving with us in early May, when we expect to also have a pale 'pastel' version too. If you want to reserve some please email
