The "Prince Nymph" is written and tied by YellowStoneFly of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog. I have caught fish from North Carolina to Arkansas to Colorado to Idaho and Montana with this fly. Even know a few locals who swear by this bad boy during most of the year on the St. Joe River, ID. Me, I do use, but restrict to those days when I just don't see any thing hatching and the fishing is slow. Why? Well, like the Royal Wulff, I just cannot figure out what the fly represents in the water. I have read a black caddis, minnow, stonefly and multiple other creatures. I just flat don't know!
|Tie in 1 strand of gold wire for weight.|
|Tie in 2 peacock hurls @ bend & wrap hurls forward |
(moisten first for ease of wrapping).
|Wrap gold wire forward evenly spaced, secure|
& clip off excess wire only (not hurl).
|Tie in 2 white goose biots for wings.|
|Continue wrapping hurl behind bead head.|
|Now add brown hackle and tie off behind head. |
Snip and done. (Some prefer putting
white biots on top of hackle).
Good luck. Tight lines! And enjoy Idaho fly fishing today. 'Tis the season right now.
