Flies made of silicone? Can it work? After more than half a year of intensive and more than successful tests on different waters and conditions, we can answer these questions with a resounding yes, because our testers certify that these special flies made of silicone are exceptionally catchable.

They are completely handmade in Austria and poured on barbless hooks. Only high-quality silicone is used, which creates very robust imitations that can be used for a long time due to their durability and with which you can catch a lot of fish without wearing out.

At the same time, the silicone used is soft enough so that the legs, antennae and tails move very realistically and seductively in the water and deceptively imitate a living insect.

The use of silicone also offers the great advantage of super-realistically reproducing the natural models of the fly patterns. In this way, even the most suspicious fish can be fooled with a perfect imitation.

These special silicone flies are a real innovation in the field of artificial flies. You can find the Alvarez Flies exclusively in our online shop, because 1000flies was able to secure the exclusive distribution. For the market launch, we are offering these special flies at an introductory price of €3.27 instead of €3.68.

With the special nymphs made of silicone you will find imitations of larvae of different sizes of the three most important insect groups:

  • Mayflies
  • Caddisflies
  • Stoneflies

which make up the majority of the insect larvae present and thus typically the main food of trout and grayling in streams and rivers.

All patterns have been designed and attached to the hook in such a way that you can add weight in the form of Soft Tungsten (not included) to the hook shank between the actual imitation and the hook eye. In this way you can weight the different nymph patterns made of silicone individually and thus optimally adapt them to the respective conditions on the water.

Of course, the antennae, legs and tails of the special nymphs also play very seductively and provocatively, perfectly imitating a wriggling larva that is drifted by the current and represents a tasty and easy prey for every fish.
