The Story

Most Czech-style nymphs have a bit of flash, or what tiers call the "hot spot." This barbless, jig-style tungsten-headed Pheasant Tail pattern has a brightly colored band just below the bead, which helps the fly stand out in the faster moving water most often fished using Czech-nymphing techniques.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Durable I had a chance to get out in SE MN last weekend. Liked the tungsten bead and the fly was still in great shape after 10-12 caught fish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Ordered the orange hotspot, this fly works great for water that is not as clear as some, this fly shows up. Have had a lot of success for rainbow trout in Oregon with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for me! Love the hook. Barbless, but still curved enough to hang a little dropper line off with no problem if you choose. Comes out of the fish with no effort. Good for the trout :-) On the expensive side, but we'll see how they hold up. Quality looks very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly Used it last weekend on the lower Owens river and it worked like a charm. I I felt guilty after my 8th brown and ended up giving one to a buddy who was being skunked and he promptly caught 2 fish. Will definitely buy this fly again.
