Barbless Marsden's Mohicans
The barbless Marsden Mohican range, a deadly range of trout lures tied on Partridge K4AY Barbless Sproat Grub & Buzzer Hook are a strong and deadly lure. We developed these initially for larger trout, those nice double figure 10 to 20lb trout. They will of course work well in any waters and for any trout! Looking like a fry these work extremely well in the margins retrieved slowly with a figure of 8 and as a general lure. With a Pine Squirrel wing which is highly mobile due to Semperfli Straggle String which sits below the pine as a thorax which projects the wing keeping it highly mobile in the water.
The Iridescent bodied Mohicans are stunning fry imitators, the black bodied and olive bodied all having Semperfli Straggle String thoraxes. These truly are a deadly mini lure.

Why Marsden's Mohicans?
We named this fly range in memory of Mick 'The Bathtub' Marsden, a good friend of the The Essential Fly team and a really good fisherman.
He caught over 50 rainbows in one day at Roxholme including a few doubles! A very talented angler, Mick often caught when others did not.
Mick loved these flies when we gave them to him to try, along with our Inferno Nymphs. Sadly, Mick made his last cast a short time ago so we thought this a fitting tribute.
Tight lines Mick.
