Kenan Haseta walks you through (in detail) the tyings of the four patterns which are included in the Barbless Flies Late-Season Bosnian Dry Fly Selection Selection.

These Caddis flies are all tied on Ahrex FW503 barbless size 16 hooks and use the very best materials available, all topped off with 1st-grade hackles and CdC.

The patterns included are:

  • Black Palmer Gnat
  • Indicator Olive
  • Olive Palmer Gnat
  • Zuti Emerger

Full Descriptions for each fly can be found below:

Black Palmer Gnat - What can I say about one of the most famous flies on both rivers and stillwaters? Taking its inspiration from the famous Griffith's Gnat - originally conceived by George Griffith, one of the founders of Trout Unlimited in the USA, it's a very buggy dry fly and perfect for late-season trout. This version is tied an a barbless Ahrex FW503 size 18 hook with a Bosnian 'special' dubbing - with added flash. This palmered Black Gnat is tied with a little flashy tail and Grizzly pro-grade Rooster Hackle - the perfect high-floating fly for fishing the evening riffles.

Indicator Olive - So, it's nearing the end of trout season, grayling are starting to rise, they are usually picking up small olives trapped in the surface film. Towards the end of the season, up-winged flies usually start to change colour from a darker olive to a much lighter shade, this Indicator Olive pattern is tied with a golden olive thread, ribbed with lemon micro-floss. When fishing at range with longer leaders we need to be able to spot our flies easily - this pattern is toed with a hot-orange floss between the split CdC wings. These Indicator Olives are tied on an Ahrex FW503 size 18 barbless hooks.

Olive Palmer Gnat - When you need a fly to ride high on the surface - and not easily sink, one of the very best styles is a palmered Gnat - a palmered style fly is tied with a spiky hackle (usually Grizzly Rooster hackle) along the full length of the hook. This Olive Palmered Gnat is tied on an Ahrex FW503 size 18 with a light olive body, Veevus pearly flash tail and a palmered pre-grade Grizzly Rooster hackle. This style of fly is perfect for fast currents and pocket water - short drifts in rougher water. When fished under branches and on faster currents/riffles, keep close contact and impart just a little movement into the fly.

Zuti Emerger - When fishing in the early part of the day you will often see fish just sipping flies from the surface - leaving hardly any trace of a rise. This is the time to deploy the emerger style patterns. Your first choice should be an emerger fly tied on a small strong hook, sometimes the biggest fish leave the smallest trace at the surface. This Zuti Emerger (Zuti is Bosnian for the colour Yellow - every day's a school day) is tied on a size 18 Ahrex FW525. Tied using Veevus Lemon thread for the body, Veevus White thread as a rib and a small red collar. This Bosnian version of the emerger has its CdC wings attached across the hook eye, allowing the fly to sit upright in the water - just like the emerging insect.

Great service..

Keith Coupland
Bosnian late season dry fly

Hi There,
Firstly, delivery was , as ever, most prompt. The flies are well tied - which is one reason I bought them - I am sure these flies will work well on my local beck. I will try them out next week. I have enjoyed the video and will use the models to whip up a few of my own.

Many Thanks for doing a great job.
