Fresh off the boat we have a new family of flies to add to the Manic Tackle Fly Collection called the Nosebleeds.
Tied sparsely on straight shank hooks with some long hackle tied in behind the bead these are where nymph meets soft hackle with a bit flash and colour thrown in for good measure.
There are four different flies in the range:
Gold Tungsten Bead sz10-16, a killer back country rainbow pattern
Black Tungsten Bead sz10-12, dialled back colours for picky browns
Pink Tungsten Bead sz12-14, a spawning rainbow or dirty water specialist
Purple Tungsten Bead sz14, for when you want to throw subtlety out the window
