Kites Imperial - Fly Tying Dressing

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Kites Imperial. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Kites Imperial at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Kites Imperial yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Kites Imperial as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.
