Prince Nymph, Prince


Doug Prince created a classic. It inmitates a host of different bugs based on size and color. 


While most fish this fly in the classic variation, we like to tie it up in a variety of colors and sizes. UV Ice Dubbing is an excellent substitute for Peacock Herl that can create a host of options. 


It can imitate Mayflies, Caddis and Stoneflies. One of the best searching patterns available, fish this as a lead fly when there's no hatch and you aren't sure what the fish are taking.
