    Well tied fly... - 9/27/2014

    Great pattern that always needs to be in my arsenal of flies. These in particular are tied well and hold up well with the inherent shredding of catching multiple fish.

    Great Purchase - 9/9/2014

    I loved the flies I purchased for my sons. It's a Christmas gift so they haven't seen them yet but they'll love them. I received the flies very fast. Thanks.

    When all else has failed to generate strikes I tie on a Bead Head Prince and the rainbows and brookies get excited. This is my go to fly when the day has been a bust. gotta have one in the fly box.

    Great nymph - 8/27/2014

    This is a great all around nymph pattern. It has caught many types of fish in different locations. Sunfish and chub in MA, Brook trout and Rainbow trout in NH and all sizes of Cutthroat trout in ID. This fly is well tied. For me it has been the most effective in a size 12 dead drifting it in deep pools. If you don't know what nymphs are in the water this is a good one to try.

    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.

    Essential.... - 6/6/2014
    By: from Upstate NY

    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.
