The Bead Head Prince Nymph
Instructor: Kevin Murdock

The Prince Nymph pattern is what I would term an attractor nymph, as it doesn't really look exactly like any particular aquatic insect. However, because of its highly generalized appearance, and depending on its size and how it is fished, it could easily be taken for a wide variety of aquatic insects, such as a stonefly, a sow-bug, a backswimmer, etc. It doesn't look a lot like anything, but it looks a little like everything. I prefer to fish it in ripples or turbid waters where the trout doesn't have much time to examine the fly before committing. It can be fished dead drift, short lined, (My preferred method), swung like a wet fly, or under an indicator (smaller sizes).

Bring your vise, tools, light, and any magnification you need, and some 6/0 black or red thread. Sign up by calling me at 688-4518, or see me at the club BBQ on August 1st. If you're a beginner, don't let that stop you, come and join us. We have loaner vises, tools and lights for those who do not yet have their own.
