Prince Nymph

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!
Add gold bead head to 10-18 hook and tie in
2 red/brown goose biots.

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).

Well, anyway, this is the way I like to tie the fly. It can be a very effective Idaho fly fishing nymph. Actually, I like to "dead drift" and then "tight line lift" at the end of a drift. The takes you can get as the fly lifts can rattle your arm.

Good luck. Tight lines! And enjoy Idaho fly fishing today. 'Tis the season right now.
