I'm not sure why this unlikely looking nymph catches fish but, boy, does it ever. This is the beadhead prince nymph and it's a must have fly in any nymph box. I tied this one in size 12 and its one of a dozen I'm tying for the stock I'm accumulating for the shop.
The recipe is:
Hook: nymph hook from size 8 to 14 or even smaller.
Bead: Gold to suit hook size
Thread: Red 8/0 or finer
Tail: Brown goose biots
Ribbing: Gold wire or tinsel to suit hook size
Body: Peacock herl
WIngs: White goose biots
