This selection gives a wide range of both dry and wet flies to imitate the Daddy-Long-Legs or Crane fly which appears from June to September. Fish will take them with variant bodies of silver tinsel, or detached coloured chenille and these patterns are excellent catchers of both trout and salmon. Hoppers can also be fished to imitate the grasshopper and in smaller sizes they work superbly in a hatch of midges.
The flies in this website are a mixture of old traditional patterns, variants and new patterns many of which were invented by Frankie McPhillips. The use of correct colour blends of traditional Irish Dubbing in the dressings gives them an authenticity and uniqueness which, distinguishes them from other fly brands. Their quality is superb and this is continually monitored and checked by Frankie to ensure the highest standards.
