    Bead Head Prince - 6/25/2014
    By: from Baltimore County, MD

    I fish the Gunpowder River in Maryland year round, and my all-time "go to" fly in the Bead Head Prince. This pattern never fail,s as I routinely catch 8-16 inch Browns and Bows, using both a single fly pattern, as well as a double fly (dropper)pattern.

    I have caught more fish on this nymph than any on multiple streams early, in the summer and during the fall. Everyone needs this nymph and in a couple of sizes.

    This is a great fly. You may find cheaper, but not better. This is also reasonably priced.

    Ordered the bead head prince nymph flies to replenish my fly box. It’s one of the constant producers in the small WNY streams I fish. A must have in your fly box.

    I use this fly all the time! It's so great for easy fishing with big results! I just had to buy another! Orvis products are always exceptional!

    Have had amazing good fortune with the bead head prince nymph, reordered 5 to re-stock my fly box. Heading to the Taylor,Gunnison and East Rivers in July and August. I highly recommend this for large deep Rainbows and Browns.
