The Story

This classic nymph imitates many natural nymphs, and its beadhead gives it just enough weight to let you get it down deeper than a regular nymph. Swing this fly in riffles or runs to imitate many different types of mayflies, or fish it to prospect for trout. A great nymph with a touch of flash to attract trout, it's a must-have nymph for any fly box.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality fly! All the flies I've purchased from Orvis have been top quality. I'm really excited to hit my local streams soon to try it out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time to repack the fly boxes! Its been quite a while since I needed more patterns. SO this was a project I put some planning into and purchased around 70 flies at sizes 6-12-14-16 (can't see anything smaller anymore!). Nymphs, streamers, dries - all tied nicely and looking sturdy enough to survive those occasional rock snags and pickeral strikes! Took a while to arrive, but very pleased with the quality and selections available. Will buy again for sure...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me I fished this fly last week and the fish hammered it. I caught a dozen or so sunnies and bass. They hit it so hard the bead head got knocked loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An effective go-to nymph! This is a slightly flashier version of its traditional cousin the bead-head Prince Nymph. This is a work-horse fly and a great go-to for rivers and still-water. Try it in between hatches or even during PMD season. In lakes, trail it 6 feet under a strike indicator or 2 feet behind wolly bugger- big trout love it!
