Ceramic Flies Barbless Nymphs
French Nymphs / Shrimps|Czech Nymphs /

These special nymphs are constructed from lead wire with a baked ceramic coating.  They are produced by Stanislas Freyheit at

The story of how Stan developed these incredible flies and the story of their success can be found here: The French Chronicles: Ceramic Nymphs

Streamlined, exaggerated segmentation, heavy for their size, these flies have everything needed for the ideal French or Czech nymph fly.  Their appeal to fish has been proven by much success in ultra clear water fishing where the fish can see every detail of the fly.  Clear water is not their only arena though and they are equally effective in peat tinted waters common in many of our best trout rivers.

For French nymph, especially over skinny water, the smaller sizes are preferred and for Czech nymph or fishing over fast deep water the larger sizes offer excellent depth penetration.  

These flies are tied on Hends Barbless Hooks and are all made in France

For now we are stocking a range of Six colour patterns in 4 different sizes to cover most fishing situations, we hope to add more in the near future.

The barbless ceramic flies are available in 4 different sizes :

XS- Hends BL 500 #18 / lead wire 0,5 mm

S- Hends BL 500 #16 / lead wire 0,6 mm

M- Hends BL 500 #14 / lead wire 0,8 mm
