Fly Sets

With these flies, exclusively produced for Essential Skills from master patterns tied by Oliver Edwards, you can really improve your catch rate.

These patterns are typical of Oliver's style, close copies of the naturals, incorporating those all important Trigger Features which trout and grayling recognise and key onto. With very few exceptions all are of Oliver’s devising, and perfecting. Many are featured in the Essential Skills DVDs or his ground-breaking book Flytyers Masterclass. All these patterns have had permanent places in his fly boxes for many years.

These flies are produced on barbed hooks but these can easily be flattened down in the normal way for catch and release.
