Put a pair from your Bead Head Prince Nymph - 2 Pack into your fly box and they may be the prettiest fly in it – and one of the most effective, and not just for trout. Credited to angler Doug Prince, who furthered its development in the 1930s and 40s, the Prince Nymph, or Brown Forked Tail as it is also known, features white wings and a split brown tail reminiscent of a stonefly. A peacock herl acts as the body wrapped with gold-color wire. It's an American favorite. As an attractor fly, it works great and can imitate the air bubble many nymphs ride to the surface, such as caddisflies and mayflies, which trout eat consistently. The Bead Head Prince Nymph sinks quickly and swims well. Reach for one anytime and anywhere and for all water conditions as this is a fish-catcher! No fly box should be without at least one Bead Head Prince Nymph - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, grayling, steelhead, and more
- Mimics a stonefly and the swimming nymphs for caddis and mayflies; fished properly it can imitate a small minnow
- Technique: fish like any nymph; larger sizes act as stonefly imitators and when sent deep it can act like a streamer to attract attacking trout; cast upstream and reel in the retrieve to make it appear as a minnow swimming downstream
- Qty. per Pack: 2
