Since it's inception at the youth world championships by team U.S.A.'s Hunter Hoffler, the France Fly has become a confidence pattern for anglers the world over. It's minimalist, no-frills, design leaves little for fish to fuss over and it sinks like a rock. It's one of the best imitations out there for Baetis, midges and other small, slim, food items available to trout. These flies come from the vice of our friend Zach Kirsch and are tied to our exact specifications. They're tied on Dohiku HDJ Jig Hooks using our proprietary slotted tungsten beads.
