a great candy-yummy variation of the Prince nymph from Cheech over at Fly Fish Food.
usually tied on a straight hook shank, this version takes on a more dynamic appearance. that doesn’t mean that it’ll catch more fish but anything ‘dynamic’ has the wonderful side-effect of keeping me from falling asleep !
simple and straightforward to tie, Cheech’s well thought-out tutorial will guide you through this pattern. as noted, it’s one of those ‘must-have’ flies and one well worth having in different sizes and color/material combinations.
“don’t be afraid to get a little crazy at the vise. Remember, you won’t know if the fish are going to eat it until you feed it to them.”
