Needle Tubes

Developed and made in Scotland by Grays of Kilsyth, using very fine stainless steel tubing, the type used in the manufacture of hypodermic needles, Grays Needle Tubes are the finest plastic lined metal tubes available for fly tying, allowing the fly tier to create ultra slim steelhead, sea trout and salmon tube flies of only 1.5 mm diameter, in lengths from 10mm to 40 mm.

Grays stainless steel Needle Tubes are heavier than plastic or aluminium tubes but lighter than brass or copper, and ideal for tying sea trout, salmon and steelhead tube flies, like the simply dressed flies illustrated. Since their introduction at the start of the 2008 fishing season, tube flies dressed on our Needle Tubes have accounted for some notable catches of salmon, sea trout and steelhead.

A box of Twenty Traditional Scottish Salmon Flies tied on high quality Fulling Mill double hooks. Each Traditional Salmon Fly selection has been chosen to give a good range of patterns in terms of colour and style, in the most practical sizes of 10 and 8, for use throughout late spring, summer and autumn. This selection of salmon flies blends the old and the new in Scottish salmon fly fishing.  Old favourites like the Jock Scott, Blue Charm, Green Highlander, Thunder & Lightning, Stoat's Tail and Munro's Killer claim their well deserved place in the fly box alongside the new breed of modern shrimp patterns like the Cascade and Ally's Shrimp, which have proven so effective in recent seasons. Each selection of salmon flies is presented in a durable and practical plastic fly box.

Also available is a box of twenty of the most popular and effective modern salmon flies tied on high quality Fulling Mill Nickel Silver double hooks. Each Ally's Shrimp/Cascade selection has been chosen to give a good range of patterns in terms of colour, in the most practical sizes of 13, 11, 9 and 7, for use throughout the salmon season. This selection, tied in the modern long-tailed shrimp style, includes some of the most popular and effective modern salmon flies of all time, such as the now famous patterns devised by Ally Gowans - Ally's Shrimp and the Cascade Shrimp in silver and gold. Also included are flies dressed in a similar style, i.e. the Magus and Black Boar, which have proven their worth in recent seasons. For more details and photographs of the Ally's Shrimp and Cascade boxed fly selection, see: Ally's Shrimps and Cascade Salmon Flies

Modern Salmon Doubles


Twenty modern Scottish Salmon Flies tied on high quality double hooks. Each Salmon Fly selection has been chosen to give a good range of patterns in terms of colour and style, in the most practical sizes for use throughout the main part of the salmon fishing season. These salmon flies, in sizes 15 to 8, include some modern patterns which have become contemporary classics - from the now famous Ally's Shrimp and Cascade, to more recently established patterns like the Editor and Executioner, variants of the popular Flamethrower, the Posh Tosh and Gledswood Stoat, to the Dee Sheep and Silver Sheep.  This Salmon Fly selection offers practical variety for late Spring, Summer and Autumn salmon fishing.  The smaller, darker patterns will, in general, be of most use in low, clear or warm water conditions while the larger, brighter patterns will come into their own in high, cold or coloured water.

Turn your fly into a spinner

The Spinhead

The Spinhead is an entirely new spinning device, a kind of fly spoon, designed and developed by Grays of Kilsyth primarily for the salmon fly fisherman who prefers the fly rod to the spinning rod. The Spinhead, which can be attached to your fly or used in place of your fly, is, like a flyspoon, light enough (only 1 gram) and small enough to be cast, with care, on a salmon fly rod, when river conditions might otherwise warrant the use of the spinner.

Sea Trout Flies

Two selections of sea trout flies for day and night sea-trout or sewin fishing on British rivers, including some of the most famous traditional sea trout fly patterns and a selection of sea trout tube flies dressed on the more recently developed Grays Needle Tubes.

Sea Trout Needle Tube Flies

A box of twelve sea trout tube flies dressed on ultra slim stainless steel needle tubes, with an outside diameter of only 1.5 mm. The selection comprises six patterns, each dressed on two lengths of needle tube, 25 mm (one inch) and 35 mm (about 1.5 inches), supplied with silicone hook link tubing and presented, with or without tube fly double hooks, in a high quality Myran tube fly box.

For more information, see: Sea Trout Tube Flies

Sea Trout Singles
