Black Frances Tungsten Conehead

Black Frances Tungsten Conehead

Black Frances Tungsten Conehead

In recent years the Frances pattern has become a fly that you simply can't afford to leave out of your fly box. It has accounted for simply huge numbers of fish and there's nowhere it doesn't work - often in difficult conditions and for difficult fish that can't be tempted by other flies. This black version with its heavy tungsten silver conehead to get it down into the salmon's space and hackle stalk feelers for maximum water 'noise' (and because most experienced salmon fishers want these rather than boar bristle) is a very useful addition to the Red. We tie the feelers quite long but they can of course be trimmed if necessary (Icelandic guides often like to do this)

Our sizes for conehead Frances patterns are based on measurement 1 below

  1. the front of the cone to the back of the wool body
  2. the front of the cone to the tips of the feelers
